Gleaners Community Food Bank and Weingartz have partnered for the 11th annual Mow Down Hunger campaign, which runs Sept. 14 to Oct. 6.

Weingartz, a Michigan-based and family owned retailer of outdoor power equipment, will match donations dollar-for-dollar up to 1 million meals. With the Weingartz match, each dollar donated to Gleaners provides six nutritious meals to hungry children in southeast Michigan.

“We know kids and families have a lot to worry about this school year with so many changes in how students will learn, but with help from our community, hunger won’t be among them,” says Gerry Brisson, president and CEO of Gleaners. “Every child deserves to know where their next meal is coming from every day. We are so grateful for the support of Weingartz and our community to make sure students get the nutritious meals they need at this incredibly important time.”
