Downriver-Monroe Food Fight
March 6 -17, 2017
Gleaners Community Food Bank works every day to help keep food on the tables for families in southeast Michigan. After the rush of the holidays, food donations tend to slow down in the spring. This combined with the tough decision many are forced to make during these chilly months to heat or eat, makes this the perfect time to get involved. You can help make sure that families your community won't face this challenge by participating in our second annual Downriver-Monroe Food Fight.
Your team can join in on a friendly competition against other organizations in Downriver and Monroe communities to raise the most meals (including both food and monetary donations). Winners from each size category will be invited to a celebration event and take home the annual traveling trophy. Did we mention bragging rights?
The best part? All food collected will stay in the communities where you live and work, going to partner agencies like Monroe County Opportunity Program and Fish & Loaves.
Participation in this event will be both fun and rewarding, and Gleaners is here to help you make it easy! We will provide all the supplies you need to start your collection including boxes for non-perishable donations, canisters for monetary donations, a Virtual Food Drive for online donations, posters, eBlasts you can send out to employees, and help facilitating pick-up or delivery of your donations.
