Feeding the hungry in the name of Jesus
The Prairie Gleaners is a Christian volunteer based organization. We seek to help those in need by utilizing unmarketable produce that would otherwise go to waste. We receive produce from very generous greenhouse owners/operators and farms in Southern Alberta and turn it into a dehydrated vegetable mix which can then be shipped all across the world to feed the hungry.
“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.” Isaiah 58:10
Since 2009 the Prairie Gleaners Society recognized an opportunity to “glean” (to glean means to pick up and gather that which is left) from our ‘over abundance’ and help redistribute where the ‘need’ of others can be alleviated. We always partner with reputable relief and aid organizations to ship and distribute the produce to the people in need throughout the world.
With shipments, in the past 11 years of our existence, to over 30 countries and a new partnership in 2020 with the local branch of Mustard Seed in Medicine Hat, we are continuing to glean locally grown produce from SE Alberta and share it with the hungry of the world.
Being resource rich in Canada we exist to support resource poor communities through donations of food, materials and supplies.
As a Christian based volunteer organization, our mission is to share the love of God with the world by caring for those in need. We seek to minimize the food waste that we see all around us and use our resources to provide for those who are lacking. We believe in using our abundance for the good of others so that we can share hope and joy all across the world by providing a helping hand and a nutritious meal to those who might otherwise go without.
