Fraser Valley Gleaners Society (FVG) was established in 1999 as a registered society in BC. The concept was modeled after our sister organization, Okanagan Gleaners, and was initiated in the Fraser Valley by a small group of Christian believers who understood the incredible potential for locally available produce.
In May of 2001, a partnership with Mennonite Central Committee of BC was created to help fulfill the mission of The Gleaners – this agreement resulted in FVG building a production facility on land owned by the MCC. In August 2012 the Gleaners purchased the 10.5 acre property from MCCBC.
As a registered Canadian charity, FVG is both volunteer-run and donor-driven. On a daily basis, volunteers from many walks of life give of their time and energy to slice, dice, scrape, and mix our product.
Fresh and frozen vegetable produce and apples are donated by a committed and growing set of produce partners. FVG operating costs are completely covered by the generous donations of our financial partners made up of individuals, foundations, and corporate sponsors .
