Philomath Community Gleaners
Philomath Community Gleaners help to feed the hungry by harvesting local food that would otherwise go to waste and distributing it back to our gleaner members. In 2017, the Gleaners served 341 different individuals including 224 adults and 117 children.
Woodshare is also a component of our Gleaners program. Donated firewood is cut, collected, and shared among Gleaner members who need wood as a fuel source.
A unique feature of this program is that gleaner volunteers are able to share the food and firewood that they harvest with “adoptees” or those people who cannot physically glean food or firewood but still have needs for one or both. In 2017, the program served 59 adoptee households.
The PCS Gleaners program is affiliated with the Linn Benton Food Share’s Gleaners program and follows its guidelines and policies.
