The students, teachers and parent volunteers had a great time learning about how our donations can help people from facing hunger on a daily basis. We learned that our food donations are sent out to schools, food pantries and other organizations every day. We got to see the food packing operation in action and take part ourselves. The Gleaners Community Food Back collects and distributes over 3.5 million pounds of food each year to help feed the hungry in southeastern Michigan.
As a group we sorted and packed 4,480 pounds of food ~ enough for 3,733 meals ~ in our short time at the food bank.
