THE STORY:

Karma Yogis is an informal group of friends we started here in the Detroit suburbs recently. The idea is take time off from our hectic lives and volunteer for worthy causes. For February we chose Gleaners Food Bank, Detroit. I thought I would bring this worthy charity to fellow crowdrisers attention.

What shall I say about Gleaners - they are Awesome!!
For more than 33 years, Gleaners Community Food Bank has been nourishing communities by feeding hungry people. Last year, Gleaners distributed 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 Michigan. Of every dollar donated, Gleaners uses 96 cents for food and food programs. One dollar provides three meals for a hungry neighbor.

Gleaners is committed to adopting best practices and cost-effective systems and procedures to achieve the highest possible return on its human and financial resources. Gleaners fulfills its role with a sense of compassion and urgency, recognizing that in many instances, it is the only source of emergency food for persons in need.

Gleaners collects, warehouses, repacks and distributes many millions of pounds of food for over 400 local partners. These agencies pick up food from Gleaners in convenient amounts for use in serving meals, preparing food packages, and stocking food pantries. Member agencies count on Gleaners as a reliable source of dry food like pasta and cereal, canned food, fresh or frozen meats and produce, even household items like paper towels and cleaning supplies.

Please support this worthy charity, its good Karma!! The volunteering event is on February 26th 2011
