Food Gathers at the Market

This post is a little different. I want to recognize a little known contribution of the Market to the Ann Arbor community. Many of the vendors regularly contribute their excess produce to Food Gatherers. Michael Scott of Food Gatherers stated that a typical pick-up from the Market is 1,000 to 2,000 pounds during the harvest season.

Duke Donahee selects tomatoes . . .

and puts them in the Food Gatherers boxes.

Valerie of Jeff Nemeth's farm also packs a Food Gatherers box . . . .

as does Tina Koski

Micheal Scott picks up the boxes from the vendors stalls . . . .

and loads them into the Food Gathers truck.

Our thanks to Food Gathers and the many vendors that support them.
