Request a Speaker

The Speakers Bureau is a group of volunteers who represent Gleaners at various events. We count on our Speakers Bureau to let people understand how their support helps us nourish communities by feeding hungry people in Livingston, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland and Wayne counties. Our goal is to help more members of the community get a better understanding of:

  • The need for emergency food assistance
  • How Gleaners plays a vital role in the "food chain" from donors to hungry people
  • How Gleaners is taking a leadership role in ending hunger
  • Ways that community members can get involved with Gleaners.

If you are interested in volunteering for our Speakers Bureau, or if you would like to arrange for speaker to present at your event or organization, please contact Julie Ptasznik at or 866-GLEANER, ext. 245
