Food Gatherers

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 non-perishable food; coordinating with other hunger relief providers; educating the public about hunger; and developing new food resources. Food Gatherers is not only Michigan's first food rescue program, but the first program of its kind to be founded by a for-profit business, Zingerman's Delicatessen in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Founded in 1988, we provide enough food for nearly 18,500 meals a day to 170+ community programs serving our neighbors, mostly families and children, in need of food. More than 7,000 individual volunteers donate their time to Food Gatherers annually (numbers are currently lower due to COVID-19 pandemic).
