Our Mission

To achieve a healthy, hunger-free community by empowering the people we serve through education, advocacy, access, and community engagement; building strong, collaborative partnerships with others in the community who also win when hunger is solved; setting best practices; and cultivating and fostering an energizing and spirited workforce. We serve Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Monroe, and Livingston Counties by distributing more than 43 million pounds a food a year to nearly 500 partner agencies.

Serving Southeastern Michigan Since 1977

For more than 40 years, Gleaners has had the honor of serving our community’s most vulnerable citizens by serving as the vital link between available food and those who need it most. We are changing the conversation on how to end hunger by implementing innovative and data-driven solutions, and our efforts and leadership have been recognized by Charity Navigator, Crain’s, and more.
