How It Works

Motto Mortgage Consulants has chosen Gleaners Community Food Bank to distribute food to our communities in Southeast Michigan. Gleaners exist to provide households with sufficient, nutritious foods and other important resources.

  • Ask your Mortgage Consultant for a Mission Against Hunger bag.
  • Fill the bag with nutritious non-parishable food items. 
  • Deliver the bag to our office or bring the filled bag to the closing.
  • Your Mortgage Consulant will deliver the bag to either the Warren or Pontiac distribution center.

There are other ways to give back, such as volunteer times or provide a monetary donation to help the fight against hunger. Please access this link to take advantage of other opportunities: www.gcfb.org/volunteer_opportunities

Fill the bag with non-perishable food items for donation including: canned tuna/chicken/salmon, peanut butter, canned meals, pop-top lids, spices, healthy snacks and much more.

Who We're Helping

Food is the foundation for a happy, healthy life. Hunger is everywhere—often where you least expect it. While hunger is commonly associated with the homeless population, only 10 percent of food recipients are actually homeless. The rest? Everyday people like you and me who are underemployed or unemployed, children, seniors and others who are fighting health issues.

Visit www.gcfb.org to learn more about who we’ve partnered with and how they’re working to end hunger.

Gleaners Community Food Bank helps our community and brings awareness to the fight against hunger in America. Gleaners Community Food Bank provides:

  • Educational courses on nutritious food preparation and gardening.
  • Mobile Food Pantries
  • Mobile Grocery

    Facts About Hunger in the United States

    Hunger is closer than you think. Affecting people from all walks of life, the pains of hunger are felt by communities all over America.

    2 in 3 Americans receiving food stamps are children (44%), seniors (12%) or non-elderly adults with disabilities (9%).2 

    1 in 7 Americans struggle with Hunger1

    Food insecurity is strongly associated with income, with nearly 2 in 5 households (38.3%) that reported inconsistent access to food also had annual incomes below the federal poverty line.1

    More than 1 in 6 children (17.5%) don’t have consistent access to nutritious food. This means that roughly 12.9 million kids under the age of 18 aren’t eating what they need to grow and thrive.1
