Sommers Schwartz Serves – that’s how we support the communities where our people live and work.

Sommers Schwartz in the communityGleaners Community Food Bank has established a vital link between available food and those who need it most. Local and national food producers often have surplus products that go to waste for lack of a way to safely and efficiently bring it to market. Gleaners has developed efficient, reliable methods for handling a tremendous volume of donated items, as well as fresh produce it purchases to ensure the people they serve have access to a variety of healthy, nutritious food.

On Friday, October 23, 2011, a team of Sommers Schartz volunteers visited Gleaners to support the organization’s mission to address food insecurity in Metro Detroit.
