Review for Gleaners Community Food Bank, Inc., Detroit, MI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

Review for PROVINCE OF ST JOSEPH OF THE CAPUCHIN ORDER, Detroit, MI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Capuchins offer a soup kitchen and support for the homel;ess in a very blighted section of Detroit. The brothers are an inspriation with their cherrful attitude in service to those most impacted by the recessions. The Soup kitchen offers a warm meal to those in need which is especuiially important and 16% of the nation's population are at risk for hunger.
The Father Slonaus Casey center is loacted in the Monestary which provides a link to a revered figure in Detroit's history and a source of hope for people with spiritla, emotional and physical needs.

Role:  General Member of the Public & contibuted financially to Solanus Casey center and the soup kitchen.

Review for Gleaners Community Food Bank, Inc., Detroit, MI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Gleaners is the critical food partner helping make the wonderful backpacker program possible. With the assistance of Gleaners hundreds of children in Michigan receive food at school to take home through an innovative Stop Hunger program developed by Sodexo.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the huge multiplier effect of our fund raising, every dollar is levered using food donations to create 16 times the value.
