Join the Hunger Free Summer Food Fight!

July 18th - August 31st

Gleaners is dedicated to serving as a reliable food resource for our communities, as it has for more than 40 years. By participating in the 28th Annual  Hunger Free Summer Plus Food Fight  from  July 18th through August 31st, 2022, you can help more neighbors in Southeast Michigan enjoy a healthy and happy summer.

Summer has always been a difficult time for children and families facing food insecurity—and this year, inflated grocery prices are adding an additional strain. As a result, parents are struggling to afford the nutritious food their kids need to stay healthy this summer. Far too many are faced with a devastating question: “How will we eat?”

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.  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 and other generous donors will match all gifts, doubling your ability to provide a Hunger Free Summer for Southeast Michigan.

This year, we are excited to once again accept donations of physical food as well! We can provide collection boxes, signage, and other support as needed.

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