About Our Auction
Food Gatherers, ann arbor’s 107one, and Kroger have joined up to raise 1,000,000 meals for food insecure children, parents, and seniors in our community. We will be “freezin’ for a reason” this week, outside of the Westgate Kroger (400 S. Maple, Ann Arbor), broadcasting live radio from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., and collecting donations of non-perishable food and funds for the fight against hunger where we live.
Your winning bid in the Rockin' for the Hungry 2018 on-line auction will help us get to 1,000,000 meals and you'll get some great music memoribilia.
About Food Gatherers
Food Gatherers is the food bank and food rescue program serving Washtenaw County. The lead agency for hunger relief in the County, Food Gatherers supports a network of 170 community partners with free and low-cost food, deliveries, and trainings. We operate several large direct service programs — the Food Gatherers Community Kitchen, the Summer Food Service Program, and the Healthy School Pantry Program — and work closely with community schools, universities, and healthcare providers to address gaps in services. Because hunger will not be solved with food alone, we advocate for policies and system changes to create an equitable food system.
In our last fiscal year, Food Gatherers distributed 9 million pounds of food — the equivalent of 7.5 million meals — through our network of partner programs.
This would not be possible without the support of our community. Will you join the fight against hunger where you live?
