EXPERIENCE GLEANERS: Explore, Engage, and Be Entertained


This annual fundraising event will be hosted at Gleaners’ Warehouse! As a fun & interactive event guests will learn first-hand about Gleaners’ mission to help food insecure Hoosiers. Hundreds of guests will get to pack BackSacks for Kids, create 10-pound bags of food, help sort & separate food items and explore the large 300,000 square foot warehouse. Once guests explore and experience Gleaners, they will be invited to sign Gleaners’ “Commitment Wall” to explain and demonstrate their commitment to Gleaners until the following year. All while eating great food, enjoying entertainment, and bidding on unique auction items all to benefit Gleaners Programs.

Money raised will help fund several children’s programs including school pantries and Backsacks: Weekend Food for Kids; our Senior Hunger Initiative helping those who are limited in mobility and resources; and our veterans who rely on mobile pantries and agency partners to make ends meet.

Experience Gleaners will take place on September 23, 2017.
