MCACHE Emerging Leaders Community Engagement Event – Food Gatherers

October 21, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am

MCACHE will be partnering with Food Gatherers to help process, inspect, and sort several tons of food donations from the community.

Food Gatherers is a non-profit organization that exists to alleviate hunger and eliminate its causes in our community. The food bank and food rescue program has been serving Washtenaw County since it was established in 1988. They rescue local food and leverage state and national food resources for hunger relief. Food Gatherers provides a network of hunger relief and engages the public in the fight against hunger. In addition to the provision of food, they advocate for policies and system changes to create an equitable food system.


In partnership, we will assist with sorting food (such as produce), stocking their pantry with canned goods, repackaging bulk items, helping salvage and wash damaged products, and working to keep the warehouse and trucks clean and food safe.


This event is allowing for up to 20 spots and will fill quickly so please register as soon as possible. We look forward to seeing you at this event!
