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.

We were so busy sorting food, we don’t have any pictures of the process, but here is our star cleanup crew!
