Each year, Gleaners distributes millions of pounds of food through our network of partner pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, senior centers and other agencies that directly feed hungry people. We also reach our neighbors in need through mobile distributions and programs that are designed to directly reach children.
Cooking Matters TM is a groundbreaking nutrition-education program that connects low-income individuals and families with food by teaching them how to prepare healthy, tasty meals on a limited budget.
Gleaners Community Food Bank partners with local schools to end child hunger one school at a time. Food is distributed year-round, including summer months when the risk of child hunger is at its greatest.
Our farm is a network of three gardens located in Westland, Plymouth Township, and Farmington Hills. All produce is donated to local food pantries. Adult and youth volunteers come to work and learn in the gardens.
Gleaners Community Food Bank and its partner agencies are providing food to neighborhoods by the truckload! Featuring an average of 14,000 pounds of food, the mobile pantry allows our partners to target areas of need where no pantry currently exists.
Meet Up and Eat Up and our after-school food programs help to provide meals to children and families 3 times a day, 365 days a year.
