Spring Clean Your Pantry Food Drive Results

This Food Drive Was a Huge Success Thanks to Our Amazing Members

During the month of April, Green Bean Delivery collected non-perishable foods from our members to be donated to our food rescue partners at Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana. We had an overwhelming response! Thank you to all of our members who participated in this community effort. With your support, we were able to donate 927 pounds of food to feed those in need—that’s roughly 1,112 meals!

“Thanks to the innovative food drive conducted by Green Bean Delivery and their generous members for donating non-perishable food items to help feed hungry families in the community.

Food donations received by Gleaners are inspected and sorted in our warehouse by more than 33,000 volunteers annually. These items are then distributed throughout our 21-county service area in a variety of methods including 593 local pantries, schools, soup kitchens and community organizations to feed the hungry in their communities.

We thank you for your partnership and support in the fight against hunger!”
