Volunteers Needed

Help us get food donations ready to distribute!

Thanks to the amazing generosity of our community, Gleaners has lots of food donations to get out to people who need it. But there's only one problem...

Gleaners is in serious need of weekday volunteers (particularly in Warren) to help sort all of the food to distribute to the community. The holidays are our busiest time of the year and come January, Gleaners has plenty of food to distribute but a shortage of volunteers to lend a hand.

Help today by signing up for a weekday volunteer shift. Tasks include include packing and sorting food donations and fresh produce.
