Food Gatherers exists to alleviate hunger and eliminate its causes in our community by: reducing food waste through the rescue and distribution of perishable and nonperishable food; coordinating with other hunger relief providers; educating the public about hunger; and developing new food resources.

What We Do

Food Gatherers is the food bank and food rescue program serving our neighbors in Washtenaw County struggling with hunger. In FY2022 we distributed 7.3 million pounds of food to more than 140 partner organizations and programs serving hungry children, adults, families, seniors, and veterans.

Food Gatherers aims to ensure that all food-insecure people in our community have access to nutritious food. We provide training, support, and food to more than 170 community nonprofit partners who operate food pantries, meal programs, or other services in our community, and we manage our own direct service hunger relief programs. These programs include: Healthy School Pantry Program, delivering monthly fresh produce boxes to children and families at school sites; Summer Food Service Program, providing summer meals to children who are eligible for free or reduced-fee lunch during the regular school year; and the Community Kitchen, serving free hot meals to the public 364 days per year.
