Food Gatherers is a food rescue and food bank program that serves Washtenaw County, Michigan. The purpose of Food Gatherers is “to alleviate hunger and eliminate its causes in our community.”
A Valentine’s gift of food takes a positive step in that direction. And, this week, an anonymous donor will match your contribution, doubling the impact of your gift.
What does your gift accomplish? In addition to honoring a friend, spouse, a child, or anyone you consider you Valentine, here’s what your donation does:
- $35 feeds a hungry child for two months
- $50 produces 300 meals at Food Gatherers Community Kitchen
- $100 provides an after-school snack for a child…for two years
- $250 provides 890 families with a bag of fresh produce
Would you prefer a Valentine of food hungry rather than the usual chocolates and flowers?
