We Need Your Help at Gleaners’ Client Choice Pantry!

I love volunteering at the Mercado. The staff and people are wonderful. My coworkers and I volunteered here.

Please join us in volunteering at the Ford Resource and Engagement Center (FREC I) Mercado Food Hub client choice pantry serving residents of southwest Detroit. Volunteer activities include helping clients select food, loading food into vehicles, stocking pantry shelves, and bagging produce. Up to 14 volunteers needed per shift.  Volunteers must be age 10 or older. 

The area is clean, organized, and a friendly environment. Mercado Food Hub Pantry is a place I would volunteer at again.

There is also a big need for Spanish-speaking intake specialists. If you are fluent in Spanish, able to commit to a regular schedule and would like to be trained for this special position, please contact Julie Ptasznik at jptasznik@gcfb.org.
