Southwestern Ontario Gleaners is an interdenominational organization that provides FREE dehydrated soup mix and dehydrated fruit for distribution to local community partners and reputable relief agencies around the world.
Unmarketable fruits and vegetables that would ordinarily be disposed are donated by growers. After being cut up by our volunteers, this produce is mechanically diced, dried, and packaged as soup mix or fruit snacks.
There are many ways to help! Growers can donate produce and receive a tax credit. You can also donate funds, request to receive updates, ask for a presentation for your organization, pray for the gleaners and much more. Click on 'Involvement' for more details.
