GLIDE remains a place for all in need to find a warm meal, access to healthcare and shelter, childcare and family services, and someone to advocate for them. GLIDE serves roughly 750,000 free meals a year.

“GLIDE really takes people who have hit rock bottom and helps bring them back, said Warren Buffett. “They've been doing it for decades. If I can help out by raising some money for them, then I enjoy doing it.”
