Birmingham, MI – The Birmingham Bloomfield Chamber’s annual signature event, Vine & Dine, returned with a roar, raising significant funds for Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan and local, participating restaurants. The event was presented by Chief Financial Credit Union.
The Birmingham Bloomfield Chamber (BBChamber) hosted its 17th Vine & Dine September 14 at the Double Tree by Hilton in Bloomfield Hills. The food and wine tasting featured nearly 20 food and wine vendors, live music, a silent auction, and wine pull. Funds raised from the event benefit chamber programming and Gleaners.
New this year, the BBChamber donated more than $2,000 to participating restaurants who have endured a particularly challenging past two years due to the Covid-19 pandemic and resulting shutdowns.
Gleaners Community Food Bank provides local families in need with access to sufficient, nutritious food, and related resources. This is accomplished this through collaboration, efficient operations, education, and innovative solutions to achieve a hunger-free community in southeast Michigan.
Gleaners provides food to more than 660 partner soup kitchens, food pantries, shelters, and other agencies across the region, and supplements efforts of those partners by offering direct service drive-up grocery and food box distributions. In its fiscal year 2020, Gleaners distributed nearly 64 million pounds of food to neighbors in need. For more information, visit gcfb.org.
