Gleaners Community Food Bank:

Gleaners is hosting free food distributions in your area. Anyone in need of food can attend–no appointment is necessary. Before heading to a mobile distribution site, please check their social media channels and Pantrynet website for distribution information at

Out of an abundance of caution for the safety of their guests, volunteers and their Community Mobiles are drive-thru only. 

  1. Each household will receive 30 pounds of groceries - Items like milk, produce, lean protein and other shelf-stable foods are typically provided.
  2. Drive-up or walk-up - Stay in your vehicle, and groceries will be placed into your trunk. Walk-up guests or those without a trunk will be provided food from a self-service table.
  3. No appointment needed - You do not need to bring proof of eligibility to receive food.

If you are in urgent need of food, please call 2-1-1, and an operator will connect you to emergency food assistance in your area. If you are unable to reach Michigan 2-1-1 by dialing directly, call the statewide toll-free number: 1-844-875-9211
