Gleaner Day at the Henry Ford

In Michigan, nearly 1 in 5 people struggle with hunger. That’s why Gleaner Life Insurance Society is teaming up with The Henry Ford to sponsor a “buy one get one free” ticket and food drive to benefit the Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan.

Gleaner Day: Buy One Get One Free


Gleaner Day is Saturday, Oct. 5, 2013 and is focused on helping feed families in our community. 

When you purchase an admission ticket to Greenfield Village on October 5th, you will receive a second admission ticket (of equal or lesser value) for free when you donate at least 5 nonperishable food items.

Not only will they be collecting food donations that day, but they will also be celebrating their final Fall Flavor weekend of 2013. They’ll be offering cooking demonstrations throughout their historic homes and enjoying a farmers market, too. Both Gleaners Community Food Bank and Gleaner Life Insurance will be on hand all day greeting guests and collecting food. The buy one get one free ticket admission and food drive is a great way to help out your community.

    I have been with my family and we loved it and as my kids have gotten older I think they would love it more because they can learn the history of Detroit as well as other cool things!

    I’ve been to HFM & GFV but never to Imax. I would like to win because I haven’t been to visit since last fall.

    I chaperoned a field trip of 1st graders there once. We walked around for 2 hours, mostly looking for the closest bathroom every 5 minutes! I’d love to go back and take my time.

    I have gone years ago and would love to return. Because of finances I am unable to take my family. It would be a wonderful experience to return with my own adult children and grand-children!

    Yes I’ve been to Greenfield Village during a family vacation when I was a kid and I took my kids when they were growing up and that was both for enjoyment and education because I homeschooled them too.

    My 5 kids are all young adults now and I haven’t been back there in many years and would really enjoy going again as a date with my soulmate/bff love of my life husband and bring along 2 of our young adult kids as a fun outing to make more priceless memories together.
