2021 HungerMitao Month

August is India’s Independence Month. Join us in the fight against hunger in our communities in Southeast Michigan. Let’s together HungerMitao!

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, shelter in place, lockdowns and quarantines have caused businesses to shut down and furlough employees, resulting in unprecedented levels of unemployment. The need for food assistance and related services has gone up exponentially. You have the power to make a difference to impact the lives of food insecure children, seniors, veterans, and others in need.

With its enormous purchasing power, the Food Bank effectively uses donated funds to purchase what the community needs. So, this year, stretch your gift to be more impactful through this online food drive. Please consider making a gift and allowing the Food Bank to procure and distribute exactly what is needed for their feeding programs. No gift is too small.

You can help by:

  1. Donating to this page to support Gleaners Community Food Bank.
  2. Sharing the message and link with your family and friends.
  3. Creating your own Virtual Food Drive page to accept donations: https://www.gcfb.org/give-food/food-drive-registration/

Every $1 donated can help provide 3 meals to our neighbors in need.

Co-founders of the HungerMitao movement Raj and Aradhana (Anna) Asava, former Michiganders, are pledging 100,000 meals to Gleaners ahead of the upcoming launch of HungerMitao_Michigan in the Fourth Quarter of 2021. Please drop a line to Cecile Aitchison at caitchison@gcfb.org to learn more or to help in the upcoming launch.
