Gleaners is expanding our healthy food distributions throughout southeast Michigan. Our Fresh Market Pantry initiatives offer convenient access to fresh produce and dairy to anyone in need of food assistance. The new concept is reshaping emergency food distributions by focusing on more frequent drop-in hour access to a wider variety of nutritious foods.
Fresh Market at Shared Harvest Pantry
Gleaners’ first Fresh Market Pantry opened in August 2019 at our Shared Harvest Pantry in Livingston. The market provides free produce, milk, and eggs to food-insecure guests. Today, the market serves more than 150 families a week during our distributions.

Fresh Market Pantry is made possible with support of the county, health systems, nonprofit pantries and shelters and local supporters like you. Make a gift today to support this new initiative and others like it.
"We are going to continue to grow with healthy and fresh. It's what our consumers need if we want to positively impact their health."
