Join us May 7, 2024, at Ford Field for Gleaners Community Food Bank’s Powered by Food finale—the Women's Power Breakfast. At Gleaners, we believe “child” and “hunger” are two words that should never go together. Your presence at the Women’s Power Breakfast helps to solve childhood hunger and makes brighter futures possible for families in our community. When our children are Powered by Food, they can do their best and reach for their dreams.

Women are a powerful force for change, especially when united by a mission to make life better for our friends and neighbors. When we work together to make a positive impact on the lives of others, anything is possible. We look forward to welcoming you to this year’s breakfast.

  • Across Gleaners’ service area, more than 316,000 students may not have enough to eat, especially in the evenings, on weekends or over school breaks.
  • 1 in 7 people and 1 in 5 children face food insecurity in our communities.
  • Gleaners and other food banks have experienced a 30% increase in need year over year.


  • The 2023 Women’s Power Breakfast raised over $323,000, which equates to nearly 1 million meals for children and families in our community!
  • Contributions are immediately put to work in our community, providing children with the healthy food they need to learn and grow.
  • Your 2024 presence is crucial for us to carry on this significant work, and your support enables us to empower families.

With your support, we believe hunger can be solved in Southeast Michigan.  Let’s make a lasting impact that stabilizes households and positions people to thrive – because the worry of hunger is off the table.
