Glick Food Drive

Around 34 million people, including 9 million children and 5.5 million seniors, experience food insecurity according to Feeding America. Food insecurity – the consistent lack of food to have a healthy life because of one’s economic situation – exists in every community, but is highest in Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities due to systemic racial injustice.

To contribute to the solution, the Glick Food Drive will run from October 2-27. Please consider donating to the Glick Food Drive to help residents living in Glick communities across the country have access to healthy and nutritious food heading into the winter months. Your support will help ensure that senior residents don’t have to choose between medicine and food, or that children won’t go hungry over the weekends without school lunches.

All monetary contributions to the Glick Food Drive will be automatically matched 3-to-1! For example, if you donate $10, Glick Gives will contribute an additional $30 for a total donation of $40.

You may ask, why are you raising money instead of collecting food? It’s a great question! Nonprofit food organizations are able to turn a donated dollar into more meals because of their relationships with major manufacturers, retailers, and farmers. This means that when you donate a dollar, you’re able to put more meals on the tables of families than if you donated food you purchased at the store.

Every dollar raised will go directly to local nonprofit organizations, selected by Glick property managers and service coordinators, to help residents and their neighbors in need. These organizations include:
