Get to Know a Gleaner

Josh Allard, Food and Fund Drive Coordinator 

Joshua Allard

Josh Allard, is a Gleaners rookie, but he’s a veteran when it comes to helping families get the nutritious food they need.

Before coming to Gleaners in mid-August, Josh worked with Macomb County Community Services Agency’s (MCCSA) food program helping distribute food to local pantries. When Josh began looking for a new opportunity, he turned to Gleaners.

“I loved the structure and what Gleaners was doing. I still can’t stop smiling after two months. I love this place! I’ve completely fallen for it,” said Josh.

In between smiles, Josh works as a Gleaner’s Food and Fund Drive Coordinator. He spends a majority of his time responding to emails, and answering phone calls and questions about hosting a food or fund drive. He also heads out into the community to drop off supplies and pick up donations from our local businesses and organizations. “It’s 8 hours of organized chaos,” Josh joked.

When Josh isn’t thinking about food and fund drives, he imagines learning to speak Mandarin fluently. He also spends time with friends enjoying a well-crafted beer from Kuhnhenn Brewing Company in Warren. It's one of his favorite local spots in southeast Michigan.

Welcome to the team Josh! We’re glad to have you.
