In Portland, 100% of the profits from Tracy’s Small~Batch Granola go directly to fund the work of our non-profit partner, Urban Gleaners. Urban Gleaners is a small, Portland-based organization that picks up edible, surplus food from grocery stores, farmers markets, farms, restaurants, and event sites and delivers it to local agencies that feed the hungry. We also deliver large quantities of food to 17 elementary schools through our Food to Schools Program, where between 70-90% of families are living below the poverty line. Hunger is less a problem of scarce resources than inefficient distribution. The concept of picking up and redistributing food is a simple yet powerful weapon in the fight against hunger.
