Delivering food to those in Need

delivered in Washtenaw County this year.
Food Gatherers, the Ann Arbor area food bank, has a goal of delivering nutritious food including produce and protein. As I have beenwriting this week, Food Gatherers collects surplus food and also buys food to supply its 150 partners. These partner organizations distribute the food through a variety of end-user programs for people in need. Most of the distribution is done through an ordering system; orders are collected from partner organizations, assembled and boxed at the warehouse, loaded onto the FG trucks, and delivered to the partners. Or partners pick up the orders.

|Low sodium soups and canned goods are among the most-wanted items for food drives. Other much-wanted foods include|
beans, rice, cereal, nut butter, and other low-sodium items such as canned fish, meat, and vegetables.
For a list of Food Gatherers' most wanted items:
I hope you will donate generously to Food Gatherers or to your local food bank, whether you give food or money!
