Market District and GetGo gave Gleaners a $2,500 gift card to use on fuel.

Market District will also make a 10 cent donation to Gleaners for every customer transaction that’s made using a Market District or GetGo Advantage Card through December.
“Nearly all of our campaigns and partnerships focus specifically on food and monetary donations, but the fact that Market District and GetGo are providing the fuel for our delivery vehicles is incredibly unique and important,” said Joe Slater, chief operating officer and chief financial officer of Gleaners. “While the food donations from our community partners are vital to helping us meet our mission, we are grateful that Market District and GetGo are thinking about how to ensure the food gets to hungry Hoosiers.”

The 15-vehicle Gleaners fleet provides food assistance to more than 260,000 people. They spend an average of $8,000 in fuel each month.
