For more than 33 years, Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan (Gleaners) has been nourishing the community by feeding hungry people. Gleaners distributes more than 36 million pounds of emergency food to over 484 partner soup kitchens, shelters and pantries in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Livingston and Monroe counties. Of every dollar donated, Gleaners uses 96 cents for food and food programs. One dollar provides three meals for a hungry neighbor. Learn more at www.gcfb.org.
Metro Times recommends that guests arrive early as Film-anthropy is only open to the first 1,000 attendees. Metro Times also recommends donating quality canned goods that are not expired or will not expire within the upcoming months.
