Daniel Dempsey has been operating Tehama County Gleaners and Food Bank for the last 11 years in Red Bluff. The organization dates back to the 1980s and has been working to help combat hunger and food waste within the county ever since.
Tehama County Gleaners and Food Bank is partnered with Feeding America and its community food pantry provides food items to households experiencing food insecurity. This organization supplies critical nutrition to hungry individuals and families that are in need. It also serves as a resource for families in need of emergency food.
Not only does Tehama County Gleaners and Food Bank help feed the hungry, it also helps reduce the amount of food waste that gets thrown away.
“At the end of the week, whatever is not taken from our pantry is given to pig farmers to feed to their livestock,” explained Dempsey. “We don’t throw anything away and there is no waste.”

Huge thank you to Mr. Dempsey. Good man!!

In Tehama County, resource conservation is less about a hands-off approach to nature and more about how residents and agriculture work with the land to maintain a mutually beneficial relationship. For the Resource Conservation District of Tehama County, composting is one area where new environmental needs can blend with traditional farming practices.
A project manager for more than 10 years, Kevin Greer’s current work includes a mobile irrigation lab and a partnership with the California Department of Food and Agriculture’s Healthy Soils program.
“Some farming practices that have been practiced for many years are compacting the soil, stripping the soil of nutrients,” Greer says.
Greer sees cover crops and composting as two big ways to achieve healthier soil while addressing some of the generational agriculture practices whose harmful effects have compounded over the years.
