BB&E held another successful volunteer day at Food Gatherers in Ann Arbor, MI, contributing to the mission of alleviating hunger in Washtenaw County. BB&E staff, family, and friends sorted through fresh produce donated by local businesses and farms. All overripe, damaged, or moldy produce was separated and composted; surplus storage boxes were recycled; and a bounty of fresh, ready-to-eat produce was boxed for distribution to nearby non-profit agencies. Ultimately, 1 ton was salvaged! We’re proud to have a small part in supporting this food rescue program, as well as its principles of efficiency, sustainability, and compassion. More information can be found at https://www.foodgatherers.org. We were so busy sorting food, we don’t have any pictures of the process, but here is our star cleanup crew!
On October 14, 2017, BB&E lent a hand to the good folks at Food Gatherers in Ann Arbor, Michigan. We were amazed at how much food is donated both by organizations and individuals, and learned about the important work that Food Gatherers has been doing as the first food rescue program in Michigan. Our team work involved sorting produce into boxes for delivery early the next week, and culminated in a thorough tidying up of the work room. It was truly a team effort and valuable time spent!
