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.

Gleaner's is an amazing organization and truely provides a helping hand to Southeastern Michigan. Their leverage is outstanding: $0.95 of every dollar donated goes directly to food programs and every dollar provides 3 meals -- NOW THAT'S RESULTS! We've raised money and food donations a number of times, and volunteered at their distribution centers (which is actually alot of fun!).
