6th Annual "Mow Down Hunger" Campaign

September 15, 2015 | Fox 2 Detroit

The need to help hungry children in Michigan is always great. Now, Weingartz is helping Gleaners Mow Down Hunger.

Weingartz is partnering with Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan (Gleaners) for the 6th Annual Mow Down Hunger campaign. Weingartz, Michigan's family-owned and locally operated provider of outdoor power equipment, will match every donation with a goal of providing one million meals.  Last year Mow Down Hunger helped Gleaners provide over 1.8 million nutritious meals to Michigan children.

More than 300,000 local children rely on free or reduced-fee meals during the school year and often miss meals over the weekend.  Mow Down Hunger directly supports programs specifically aimed at alleviating this problem.

Here's how you can help:

    These facts alone gave us every reason to help,These children are our future and have every right to be feed nutritiously each dayWhen we realized that there are children, helped by the school lunch programs during the school year, in need during the summer we were very anxious to get involved.
