Gleaners

Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan raised more $420,000 for its Million Meal Match campaign. That translates into more than 1.2 million meals for hungry kids.

During the Million Meal Match campaign, all donations are matched by Gleaners’ partners. This means that every dollar you donate will now feed six hungry kids.

Women's Power Breakfast LogoThe organization’s main event during the campaign, the Women’s Power Breakfast, took place on April 22, 2015. The 22nd year of the event was a success. Over 650 female business, community, and civic leaders attended to enjoy a good breakfast and networking opportunities.

Even if you didn’t make it to the breakfast, you can still support Gleaners in its fight to end childhood hunger. The Million Meal Match campaign runs through Thursday, April 30.

There are several ways to support Gleaners:

  • Donate online
  • Call 855-315-FOOD (3663)
  • Text MMM to 41444 to donate any amount by credit or debit card. Message and data rates may apply

You can also support Gleaners by purchasing one or two exclusive jewelry pieces from the Women’s Power Breakfast.

Metro Detroit designer Domic Pangborn designed the Women’s Power Pangborn Scarf. Link Wachler, another renowned Detroit designer, created a hand-etched pewter charm bracelet. Both pieces are available online.
