The Trail Blazers, Levy, and Urban Gleaners are teaming up to recover surplus food from Moda Center to reduce food waste and alleviate hunger in our region.
To date, the nearly 24,471 pounds of food has been recovered from Moda Center games and events and given to those who need it most.
It works like this! After every Rose Quarter event:
- Our friends at Urban Gleaners pick up hundreds of pounds of usable food
- Urban Gleaners’ volunteers sort and repackage the food
- These packages are delivered along with donations from dozens of other companies to schools, emergency food relief agencies, and summer free farmers markets
Together we are bringing food to thousands of children and families, diverting thousands of pounds of food waste, and raising funds, volunteers, and awareness of the great work Urban Gleaners does in our community.
To volunteer or make a donation, please visit the Urban Gleaners website.
