1 in 5 Oregonians live with food insecurity. At Urban Gleaners we collect delicious, fresh food before it can go to waste. And we get it to people who need it. Pure and simple.


We pick-up from our growing roster of donor restaurants, grocery stores, corporate campuses, event sites, colleges and universities, farms, and food wholesalers.

Sort & Package

At our Central Portland warehouse we sort and package the donated food into family-sized portions. This is high-quality and wholesome food.

Free food markets

We have over 35 sites in the Portland Metro area. We deliver food to schools, public Mobile Markets at parks and apartment complexes, and through a variety of hunger services organizations.
