Help us do good all over the world
Prairie Gleaners is able to operate and do the work that we do because of help from people like you! Our three most valuable assets are our produce, our volunteers, and the financial support we recieve from very generous donors. If you’d like to be involved in the work we’re doing, we have many ways that you can support us.
All of the produce we receive at Prairie Gleaners is from very generous greenhouse owners/operators and farms in Southern Alberta. Without their donation of produce, whether it be peppers, cabbage, potatoes, carrots, onions, etc. we would not be able to make our dehydrated vegetable mix. They are our first asset!
Every workday, presently Tuesday to Saturday mornings from 8:30 a.m. to noon, the door opens and the volunteers arrive. They come ready to work at preparing the vegetables to be put through the dicer and then spread on pans so it can be put into the dehydrators. Our volunteers are our second asset! Without them we could not accomplish the task.
All expenses for all aspects of the Prairie Gleaners Society are covered by donations. So last, but not least, our third asset is our very loyal financial supporters. Donations are eligible for a charitable giving tax receipt.
Prairie Gleaners is a non-profit Canadian registered charity (charitable # 85950 4524 RR0001)
Give of your time
One of the main ways you can get involved with Prairie Gleaners is to come to the plant and volunteer your time! We operate 5 days a week from Tuesday to Saturday and we’re always happy to have extra volunteers! We are at the plant cutting and processing our produce from 8:30am to 12:00pm, with a coffee and snack break in the middle. We welcome drop-ins and all of the equipment is supplied, so just come out in your work clothes! We do ask that if your group is larger than 4 people that you call ahead and let us know so that we can be sure to have jobs for everyone.
So we welcome you to come out and join us sometime! You’ll be greeted by friendly faces and we’d be happy to give you a tour of the plant. Bring a friend or just come by yourself and spend the morning making a difference!
Give of your resources
Another very important way that you can support the Prairie Gleaners is to give resources. Everything that we do is made possible by generous donations and we’re so thankful for the way that God provides for our needs through various people and organizations.
