Gleaners calls for cash, food, volunteers

The administrator of Gleaners Food Bank is calling for more help as its most difficult season approaches.

Operations director Susanne Quinlan said prior to Sunday's Ride for Hunger fundraiser that Gleaners continues to try to help the hungry amid rising costs for food, energy and fuel.

“The cost of operations has gone up quite a bit,” she said outside city hall, where 121 motorcyclists registered for the ride, raising $5,200 for Gleaners, the same amount raised last year.
