A wonderful organization: the cleanest facility imaginable; careful, frugal management of resources; hard-working staff; good use of volunteers; excellent collection and distribution of life-saving food supplies. A Detroit treasure.

Gleaners fills a community need that has become more significant in the wake of the floundering economy. The staff is proactive, dedicated, and equally open to the support of one person or a small army. They always respond to requests whether they are need based or inquiries to support on a volunteer basis.

Gleaners makes miracles! They have a tireless staff, and army of volunteers and an amazing impact on the Metro Detroit area! They operate at an amazing cost and spend every available penny on helping people in need. Gleaners people are good people doing great things! I have volunteered with them at numerous events, and it's a great chance to help out in the community. So often, "helping a charity" means simply pulling out the checkbook, but Gleaners allows you to help at ground level. Meals on Wheels, the food bank, stuffing holiday boxes, are all great opportunities to get directly involved with some of the great things Gleaners does.

It was an incredible experience working with this organization. I have worked for many nonprofits, but this the best of the best. They are extremely organized and professional, as well as making us feel like we are part of the business. I can't wait to volunteer again. It is a great way to spend an afternoon; you meet new people and help an efficient organization serve so many people in need. I have to say thank you for making my life experiences even richer.

There is so much love in this organization. I've volunteered making food bundles and the facility was neat and clean. The staff and the others who came out that afternoon were so friendly. And on the other end of things I have seen the Gleaners trucks out in my community. What a life saver to so many.

I volunteered at Gleaners several times a long time ago and saw that they were making a difference in people's lives. As a result, I donate s small amount from my paycheck every month to the non-profit as doing so would be the right thing to do so they can continue their good work.

The Great!

Gleaners does a terrific job collecting surplus food, repackaging fold into snack and meal boxes for schools in economically challenged area, providing practical food preparation demonstrations/lessons, and nutrition education. They even had a vegetable garden on a vacant lot adjacent to the warehouse, Their conversion factor for cash to meals is phenomenal and overhead is low, An excellent model to follow. As a Sodexo employee I am a frequent supporter of Gleaners to meet our common gaol of stopping hunger, and especially children hunger.
