Food Gatherers: Fighting Hunger Where We Live   

 TO  Offisite Tour
 Food Gatherers Facility, 1 Carrot Way, Ann Arbor

Join us for a tour of Food Gatherers, which is not only Michigan’s first nonprofit food rescue program, but the first program of its kind to be founded by a for-profit business (Zingerman’s Deli). Attendees will get a behind-the-scenes look at how this hunger relief organization sources and distributes more than eight tons of food daily to a network of 170 partner programs serving our neighbors in need in Washtenaw County. We will begin with an overview of the mission, history, and current state of hunger relief in the county, followed by a walking tour of the Food Gatherers facility. No visit to Food Gatherers would be complete without a look at their Foods Museum, a collection of curious and noteworthy food items donated through food drives over the years. Professional Staff of the Food Bank Program will lead the tour. Both the facility and the tour are handicap accessible. Driving directions and parking instructions will be sent to registrants a few days in advance of the tour.
