About Us

Cascade Gleaning Association is a local, nonprofit group, meeting the needs of the community right here in Snohomish County. Local supermarkets, farms, businesses, manufacturers and restaurants donate food, clothing and other items to be picked up, cleaned and distributed by the association. Our members glean perishable and non-perishable items to distribute to low and very low income families, the disabled, unemployed, underemployed, single parents and any neighbor in need. Each member family works 3-5 hours per week in exchange for food and other essential items, thus meeting needs while encouraging a strong work ethic and preserving self esteem. CGA members have many years experience. CGA also works with other local nonprofit organizations such as food banks and the Everett Gospel Mission.  We are a well organized team working together to reach a community in need.

"What is Gleaning?" (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gleaning ) Gleaning had its beginnings in Biblical days over 6,000 years ago. It was practiced then as a way to provide food for the less fortunate while maintaining the dignity of the recipient by allowing him or her to work for food. It literally means to gather grain left in the field by reapers.
