Join the Hunger Free Summer Food Fight!

July 19th - August 31st

Gleaners is dedicated to serving as a reliable food resource for our communities, as it has for more than 40 years. To meet our hungry neighbors where they are, we will continue expanded and adapted distributions across Southeast Michigan to make sure kids, families, seniors, and other vulnerable hungry neighbors have access to nutritious food no matter where they live. To support our communities at this increased level, we need your help now. By participating in the 27th Annual Hunger Free Summer Plus Food Fight from July 19th through August 31st, 2021, you can help more neighbors in Southeast Michigan enjoy a healthy and happy summer.   

Summer has always been a difficult time for families and children facing hunger, and last summer we saw some of the greatest community need we have ever seen in Southeast Michigan. Though this year there are new signs for hope, far too many of our communities’ families, children and seniors will not be hunger free this summer without our 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 raised over $95,000 through our Virtual Food Drive. 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. Citizens, Toni Wisne Sabina Foundation, GM, Ford, Mandell and Madeleine Berman Foundation and other generous donors will match all gifts, doubling your ability to provide a Hunger Free Summer for Southeast Michigan.
