Spring into Action 2020: FOOD FIGHT!

March 16 @ 8:00 am - March 27 @ 5:00 pm

Gleaners Community Food Bank works every day to help keep food on the tables for families in southeast Michigan. After the rush of the holidays, food donations tend to slow down in the spring. This combined with the tough decision many are forced to make during these chilly months to heat or eat, makes this the perfect time to get involved. You can help make sure that families your community won’t face this challenge by participating in our fifth annual Food Fight – Spring into Action.

The 4th Annual Food Fight collected enough food and monetary donations to provide 13,159 meals for those in need. We raised $4,108.88 and 1,003 pounds of food. A special congratulations to the winners of this year’s fight:


2019 Winning Teams

A N Deringer – 1st Place

Wade Trim Detroit – 2nd Place

Inspiration Clothing, LLC – 3rd Place

Advanced Visiting Physicians – New Participant Award


Your team can join in on a friendly competition against other organizations to raise the most meals (including both food and monetary donations). Winners from each size category will be invited to a celebration event and take home the annual traveling trophy. Did we mention bragging rights?

Participation in this event will be both fun and rewarding, and Gleaners is here to help you make it easy! We will provide all the supplies you need to start your collection including boxes for non-perishable donations, canisters for monetary donations, a Virtual Food Drive for online donations, posters, eBlasts you can send out to employees, and help facilitating pick-up or delivery of your donations. Every dollar donated as part of this campaign will be matched by our generous sponsors, The Harold & Kay Matching Gift Fund.
