Hunger games

Local nonprofit group Food Gatherers have opened an expanded warehouse at 1 Carrot Way. The new venture nearly doubles the organization’s ability to distribute food. The group, which has worked to alleviate hunger in Washtenaw County for 25 years, will increase its food storage capacity specifically to accommodate more fresh produce and protein. Food Gatherers was one of the country’s first food rescue programs—where food which would otherwise be discarded by retailers and restaurants is gathered and distributed to those who can use it—responsible for distributing more than 5 million pounds of food per year.

Food Gatherers is sustained by nearly 6,000 volunteers—to get involved, call 734-761-2796 or visit foodgatherers.org
