Harlan Bakeries Partners with Gleaners As Their Official Food Donation Charity!

Indianapolis •
Local family owned Harlan Bakeries., who produces and supplies premium quality Kosher bagels and baked sweet good products all over the United States, announced that they are partnering with Gleaners Food Bank on their food donations.  This will mean hundreds of thousands of pounds of frozen and fresh baked goods will now be available to hungry Hoosiers throughout Gleaners’ 21-county service area!
 
“This partnership will be vital to the people in central and southeastern Indiana who seek food assistance,” said Cindy Hubert, President and CEO of Gleaners Food Bank “We are so appreciative that Harlan Bakeries chose Gleaners to be the recipient of their generosity.”


Harlan began donating product to Gleaners in 2010, during which time they gave over 120,000 pounds of bagels, rolls, fruit breads and other highly desirable bake goods.  Their partnership with the food bank will provide people who depend on food pantries a variety they would otherwise not be able to afford.
