Join the Hunger Free Summer Food Fight!

Sunday, July 5th - Monday, September 7th

Gleaners is dedicated to serving as a reliable food resource for our communities, as it has for more than 40 years.

We will continue our expanded food distributions through the summer. To support our communities at this increased level, we need your help now. By participating in the 26th Annual Hunger Free Summer Plus Food Fight from Sunday, July 5th through Monday, September 7th, 2020 you can help more neighbors in Southeast Michigan enjoy a healthy and happy summer.

Children who rely on school meals haven’t had access to those meals since mid-March and approximately half a million of our neighbors in Southeast Michigan, who are now unemployed, have seen their resources strained for months. Seniors and other at-risk neighbors – including veterans, health care patients, new mothers, disabled and formerly homeless individuals and others who have limited mobility to secure food for themselves – have faced decreased access to resources and community. We need your help!

Food Fight 1

The Hunger Free Summer Plus Food Fight is an annual food and fund drive collection in which organizations throughout Southeastern Michigan compete to raise the most meals. Last year, our dedicated teams collected over 29,273 pounds of food and $41,948. Each year, our campaign continues to grow. We hope to count you in this year!

You will receive a Virtual Food Drive link in your welcome letter for accepting online donations on your behalf. Every dollar donated this summer will provide SIX meals for hungry children thanks to the matching gifts from Citizens Bank and many other generous sponsors.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at ybaston@gcfb.org . We hope you can join us!
