Peanut Butter, Jelly & Wine
Gleaners Community Food Bank - Detroit

Butzel Long Peanut Butter, Jelly & Wine Event

Why Peanut Butter & Jelly?

Earlier this year, the Butzel Long Women’s Leadership Committee collected 160 jars of peanut butter and jelly from Butzel Long attorneys to donate to Gleaners. The PBJ & Wine event was inspired by that collection. More than 300,000 children in southeast Michigan rely on free or reduced-price meals in school. Over the summer, when school is out, these children often go without the food they need. The Gleaners Hunger Free Summer campaign will provide an additional 2 million meals to children in poverty in southeast Michigan from June to September 2014. Peanut butter (a source of much needed protein) and jelly are staple items for the mobile pantries that Gleaners operates over the summer in partnership with over 60 schools as one part of the Hunger Free Summer campaign.

More than 300,000 children in southeast Michigan rely on free or reduced-price meals in school. Over the summer, when school is out, these children often go without the food they need to grow and be healthy, leaving them at risk of life-long effects of hunger and malnutrition.

A minimum donation of $50 per person is requested to attend the event with 100% of your donation going directly to Gleaners.  The cost of the Peanut Butter, Jelly & Wine event will be 100% underwritten by Butzel Long. All donations will go directly to Gleaners and those funds will be matched by the Gleaners Hunger Free Summer campaign thanks to the Charter One Foundation and other generous partners. This means that a $50 donation becomes $100 to help feed hungry children this summer.
