Gleaners of Clackamas County, Inc. (GCCI) is a 100% volunteer-run 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that collects and distributes food and nonfood items to limited income, elderly, and disabled residents of Clackamas County.


We Share Food

We collect food from businesses and individual donors and quickly redistribute it to our members and their adoptees. We reduce economic hardship and increase food options for over 5,000 Clackamas County residents weekly.

We Reduce Waste

The food we receive may not be able to be sold, but remains perfectly safe to eat. This is sometimes due to over-purchasing, or the item coming close to its best-by date.  By rescuing it from its path to the landfill, we reduce waste and negative environmental impacts.  Anything unfit for human consumption is also saved, going to our network of animal farmers.

We Build Community

As a 100% volunteer-run organization, we rely on each other to accomplish our mission.  Each day dozens of us work side by side to move pallets in and out of the warehouse, sort food at team sites, punch in data and pay bills in the office, organize durable donations in the resources center, and so much more.  By working together, we build relationships and a stronger community within Gleaners and throughout Clackamas County.



  • COMPASSION - We demonstrate compassion for our fellow Members and our communities. 

  • RESPECT - We treat everyone with dignity and embrace the diversity of the communities we serve. 

  • COLLABORATION - We work collaboratively with one another, our community partners and with our communities. 

  • INTEGRITY - We conduct ourselves with the highest ethical standards maintaining open honest communication, operational transparency and respect for all.
