Video: Gleaners South Campus Distribution Center
As the first food bank in the state, Gleaners has been a trusted presence in southeast Michigan since their founding 44 years ago. To continue their mission of eliminating food insecurity, they required a larger space to accept and store more fresh and frozen foods from the Feeding America network, local farmers, and other regional distribution partners. This need became even greater when in March 2020, COVID-19 affected local communities and their ability to provide food to families.
The new South Campus distribution center in Taylor, Michigan enables Gleaners to increase their mission capacity by consolidating large-volume distributions and decreasing overall operating costs.
