Gleaners’ Community Distribution Sites
In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, Gleaners Community Food Bank is actively expanding food distribution efforts to include additional distribution sites across our service area in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Livingston and Monroe counties.
We are working closely with current and new community agencies, school districts, and state officials, and will update this page with new information as it is received. We are working to add new food distribution sites every day. New information, including location, hours, and services, will be updated as it is confirmed.
Map & Legend:
Partner Agencies: Our network of partners, including pantries, soup kitchens, and shelters, are actively serving people in need. These locations can be found on the map on this page. Please call ahead, as an appointment or paperwork may be necessary.
Distributions for Households with Children: Our newly added mobile drive-thru food distributions can be found on the map on this page.
