Support a School Food Mobile Pantry

Gleaners runs School Food Mobile pantries in more than 80 schools in our five county service area providing up to 150 households at each distribution with 30 pounds of nutritious food. A sponsorship of $10,000 helps Gleaners fund the annual cost of the participating school. To learn more, contact Tracey Cholish at tcholish@gcfb.org.

Host a Food or Fund Drive

Host a food and/or fund drive at your place of business, school, church or other groups. Traditional food drives provide our partner agencies with a variety of greatly needed food items that go directly on their shelves to feed others. Virtual Food Drives are green (i.e., no boxes, no bags, no transportation costs or carbon emissions). For more information, visit our Food & Fund Drives webpage.

Sponsor a Mobile Billboard

Sponsor signage on one of our food pick-up/delivery trucks — or “mobile billboards” — that travel thousands of miles each year throughout the metro area. For more information, please contact Bridgett Lomax at blomax@gcfb.org.
