BENEFITING: Food Gatherers
Food Gatherers needs a new warehouse and we want to help make it happen. Zingerman’s is matching every donation made until we hit $10,000.
The work that Food Gatherers does to alleviate hunger and eliminate its causes is beyond incredible and important to the our entire community at large. They relentlessly work to reduce food waste through the rescue and distribution of perishable and non-perishable food, coordinate with other hunger relief providers, educate the public about hunger, and develop new food resources in order to fight hunger and poverty throughout our community.
Food Gatherers provides enough food for more than 12,000 meals a day and brings the food to more than 150 community programs serving our neighbors - mostly families and children - in need of food. The agencies receiving our food include St. Andrews Breakfast Program, Dawn Farm, Salvation Army, SOS Community Services and Hope Clinic.
Among other resources, Food Gatherers' glean surplus food from more than 300 sources including restaurants like Tio’s Southwestern Cafe, food retailers like Busch’s Fresh Food Markets, food wholesalers like Gordon’s Food Service and University of Michigan dormitories, but they need more room so they can continue to collect and meet the needs of our neighbors.

Thanks so much for helping to make this new warehouse a reality.
