Aqua-Tots is partnering with Gleaners Community Food Bank this month to help provide healthy meals for the nearly 600,000 people in SE Michigan who experience food insecurity.

All year long but especially around the holiday season, Gleaners is in need of shelf-stable protein rich foods such as canned tuna, beans, peanut butter, and protein drinks like Boost and Ensure. Hearty soups, canned veggies and fruits, cereal, and oatmeal are other items that are accepted and appreciated by those who need them. You can make a difference and help support families by donating items to one of 9 local Aqua-Tot locations or contribute to the virtual food drive.

Aqua-Tots Swim School’s virtual food drive runs thru October 22nd, help reach a goal of $5,000. Donate by October 10th for a 1:1 match. Every dollar donated provides 6 meals.
