Detroit-based Gleaners Community Food Bank is a nonprofit that provides households access to sufficient, healthy food and related resources. It operates five distribution centers in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Livingston, and Monroe counties and provides food to more than 500 partner soup kitchens, food pantries, shelters, and other agencies. Each year, it distributes more than 45 million pounds of food, or an average of 100,000 meals distributed each day to families in the region. Gleaners also provides food and nutrition education to more than 200,000 children each year. Every dollar donated provides three meals, and 92 cents of every donated dollar goes to food and food programs. It works with local and national food producers that create a surplus of products that would go to waste for lack of a way to safely and efficiently bring it to market. Gleaners continues to provide resources throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
