BB&E Gives Back (November 2019)
On Saturday, November 2nd, employees from the Northville, MI office gathered at Gleaners Food Bank’s Warren Distribution Center to volunteer their afternoon assisting the organization with their food allocation efforts. Employees worked together to package, seal, and load over 1100 lbs of frozen food. Gleaners Food Bank, founded and headquartered in Detroit, MI, distributes over 95,000 meals to those in need every day. Gleaners serves as a link between soup kitchens and those in need by soliciting surplus food, storing and repackaging it safely and then distributing it to agencies that are the direct providers to the hungry.

Volunteer Event at Food Gatherers (October 2018)
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.
