Feeding Our Hungry Neighbors

Volunteer Opportunities

“We chose to volunteer at Gleaners because of all the great work they do in the community. We feel compelled to give back to families who are less fortunate.

On a personal note, I was a recipient of food bank food when my twin daughters were first born. I don't know what I would have done back then and want to pay forward the blessings I have received in life now that I am on my own two feet."

- Angela, Volunteer at Gleaners
