If you give food to the hungry and satisfy those who are in need, then the darkness around you will turn to the brightness of noon. (Isa 58:10)
Being resource rich in Canada we exist to support resource poor communities through donations of food, materials and supplies.
wHO WE ARE
Prairie Gleaners is a non-profit Canadian registered charity (charitable # 85950 4524 RR0001)
Prairie Gleaners would not be able to fulfill our mandate without the generosity of local growers, packers, and our willing volunteers.
those in need
The Prairie Gleaners Society exists to help support resource poor communities by gleaning locally grown produce which would not be marketed. The produce is dehydrated and packaged for distribution to people in need around the world.
(TO GLEAN MEANS TO PICK UP AND GATHER THAT WHICH IS LEFT).
Beginning Tuesday, June 16, 2020 Prairie Gleaners will open their doors to all volunteers. There is no need to make an appointment to come.
We would ask however, that if you are not feeling well that you would choose to stay home. We do have social distancing in place in our cutting room, along with masks (should you not have one of your own) and gloves for all our volunteers.
The plant is open Tuesday to Friday mornings 8:30 a.m. to noon.
In Canada there are vast amounts of resources available and an abundant food supply, with a significant amount that remains unmarketable. The Prairie Gleaners Society recognizes this as an opportunity to glean from our ‘over abundance’ and help redistribute where the 'need' of others can be alleviated. We will partner with reputable relief and Aid organizations to ship and distribute the produce to the people in need throughout the world.
We are a Christian volunteer based organization. If you would like to volunteer simply show up in your work clothes any morning (presently Tuesdays to Saturdays) starting at 8:30 AM until noon. All equipment and tools are provided.
Volunteer arrangements for groups (more than 4) can be arranged by calling our plant at 403-526-5240, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
