THIS PAGE (about TVG) IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION 

Our mission in the community:


          Is to help people help themselves to meet the needs of their households by the following:

  • To provide food, aid and other assistance to the low-income, disabled, children and elderly in the Tualatin Valley, Oregon area.

 

Tualatin Valley Gleaners is a supplemental food program serving the greater Washington County Area, made up of low-income members of the community working together in collaboration to promote food security for all. The TVG incorporated in 2005 and began their mission of providing a stable way for families in need to access quality nutritious foods on a weekly basis.

 

  • Our clients gain more than just food by attending the gleaners each week. We focus on dignity and compassion for others in need. By offering a variety of information and services, we are hoping to provide the members with stability and tools for self-sufficiency in their lives.
