Gleaners Community Food Bank

Gleaners Community Food Bank

"We are grateful for Mazda Foundation's generous support. This grant will help strengthen our goal to reach more schools where children experience hunger."

-W. DeWayne Wells, President

 

 

In light of Mazda’s operations near Detroit and the area’s high unemployment rate, the Mazda Foundation has provided support to Gleaners Community Food Bank. The Mazda Foundation grant supports Gleaner’s school-based Mobile Pantry Program. This program is like an emergency food pantry on wheels; a trailer filled with food for school children and their families arrives at the school. Each family receives 40 pounds of food, including fresh produce, meat and other high protein items.
