Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana, Inc.
February 23, 2009

Gleaners provides food and grocery products to over 400 charities in 20 counties and does distribution for the State of Indiana/USDA's TEFAP and CSFP programs. Low overhead and good logistics make this a way for charities to feed more hungry people. Handling fees to charities are never higher than 14 cents per pound for donated food. Average last year was 4 cents on nearly 16 million pounds of products.

More feedback

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

making a difference

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

committed to the mission of helping charities feed the hungry.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

get more food to hungry people

Ways to make it better...

there were adequate supplies so no one has to be hungry.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

enough food and money to serve all in need

One thing I'd also say is that...

in the 60's it didn't exist, so it's a relatively new entity but it's growth is sad since it means people are still hungry!

Should this review be counted for a specific campaign?
