Modular Devices is proud to have teamed up with Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana for our first company Volunteer Day on August 21st. Our team members were excited to step out of the office and contribute to this incredible Hoosier community asset. The experience was not only rewarding but also inspiring, as we witnessed firsthand the significant impact Gleaners has on our local community.

Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana is a vital organization dedicated to fighting hunger across Indiana. Established in 1980, Gleaners has grown to become one of the leading hunger relief organizations in the state. Their mission is to lead the fight against hunger by distributing food to those in need, advocating for policies that improve food security, and partnering with other organizations to maximize their reach and effectiveness.

Key Highlights of Gleaners Food Bank:

Comprehensive Food Distribution: Gleaners collects, stores, and distributes food to more than 300 partner agencies across 21 counties in central and southeastern Indiana. These agencies include food pantries, soup kitchens, and shelters, all working together to ensure that no one in the community goes hungry.

Innovative Programs: Gleaners runs several innovative programs to address food insecurity. Their Mobile Pantry Program brings food directly to underserved areas, ensuring that families in remote locations have access to nutritious food. The BackSacks: Weekend Food for Kids program provides children with a backpack filled with food to sustain them over the weekend when school meals are not available.

Community Support and Education: Beyond food distribution, Gleaners is committed to educating the public about hunger issues and advocating for policies that support food security. They offer nutrition education programs to help individuals and families make healthy food choices and stretch their food budgets.

Volunteer Opportunities: Gleaners relies heavily on volunteers to achieve their mission. From sorting and packing food in their warehouse to assisting at mobile pantry distributions, volunteers play a crucial role in ensuring that food reaches those who need it most. Volunteering at Gleaners is a fulfilling way to give back to the community and make a tangible difference in the lives of others.

Impact and Reach: Each year, Gleaners distributes millions of pounds of food, providing the equivalent of tens of millions of meals to hungry Hoosiers. Their efforts have a profound impact on reducing food insecurity and improving the well-being of individuals and families throughout the region.

Our Volunteer Day at Gleaners was a powerful reminder of the importance of community involvement and the difference we can make when we come together to support those in need. We encourage our clients, colleagues, and anyone looking to make a positive impact to schedule time to volunteer at Gleaners Food Bank. Whether it's a few hours sorting food or helping with a special event, every bit of help contributes to their mission of ending hunger in Indiana.
