Mission Statement

Gleaners Community Food Bank, with broad community support, fights hunger in southeastern Michigan.


For more than 40 years, Gleaners Community Food Bank has been "feeding hungry people and nourishing our communities." Last year, Gleaners distributed 42 million pounds of emergency food to 499 partner soup kitchens, shelters and pantries in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Livingston, and Monroe counties.

Of every dollar donated, Gleaners uses 97 cents for food and food programs. One dollar provides three meals for a hungry neighbor.

Very easy and straight forward work. The seniors at this location were super friendly and happy to see us helping out! As long as you keep on task everything should run smoothly! Would definitely recommend attending this event to anyone! I plan on returning to volunteer with family soon.

Enjoy the volunteer work as well as meeting new people to work with whom are all very nice.

This is a very fulfilling volunteer opportunity. Not only are we contributing to hunger alleviation, which is very fulfilling, but the self-satisfaction of planting and harvesting produce and seeing the fruits of your own labor is also very rewarding.

Great stuff going on from so many different approaches.

I worked with Kate as my leader, and enjoyed participating more than I imagined. These classes really give you an opportunity to educate willing participants in the areas of cooking and nutrition. They look up to you for guidance and it becomes a really humbling experience for anyone who volunteers. Plus, you get hands on experience with a chef and are able to cook dishes that are really good and budget friendly.
