THE STORY:

We believe that in a nation of plenty, no one should go hungry!

As the food rescue and food bank program serving Washtenaw County, Food Gatherers exists to alleviate hunger and eliminate its causes in our community. Our goal is much greater than just filling plates, we are working to create access to healthy foods.

Connecting the dots between hunger and public health
Our neighbors living in poverty face a much higher likelihood of having high cholesterol, diabetes and other diet related ailments.  Food Gatherers is focused on distributing not just more pounds of food but more nutritionally valuable food.

In our last fiscal year, 55% of all food distributed was fresh fruits, vegetables or meat, eggs and other protein items! We even have a registered dietitian on staff empowering partner agencies and food assistance recipients to make healthier choices.

Food Sources
Food Gatherers rescues food that would otherwise go to waste from more than 300 local sources including food retailers, restaurants, and food wholesalers. As members of both the Food Bank Council of Michigan and Feeding America, we are connected to statewide and national corporate and government food donations.
