Gleaners Food Bank, Pontiac Michigan
Gleaners is a vital link between available food and those who need it most. Local and national producers have surplus food that may otherwise go to waste for lack of a way to safely and efficiently bring it to market. Human service agencies face tight budgets and increasing demand for services. Our expertise and facilities bring these valuable resources together to help ease the problem of hunger.
Gleaners has developed efficient, reliable methods for handling a tremendous volume of all kinds of food. Five distribution centers bring food closer to those in need, saving member agencies time and money that they can use in providing food for our hungry neighbors.
On October 26, 2017 FedEx Office's District 50 team was fortunate enough to spend a couple hours sorting through donated food items. We sorted through 12,000 pounds of food which was enough to provide a meal for 10,000 people who need it!
