Ann Arbor Troop 4 Boy Scouts have participated in an annual food drive for many years as part of their commitment to the Scout Promise to “help other people at all times.” In 2006, the project took on deeper meaning as a way to honor Eagle Scout Tim Esch, who was the top collector for several years before his tragic death in an auto accident at age 18 in 2005.

Thanks to generous donors, the Troop 4/Tim Esch Memorial Scouting For Food drive has provided an average of 60,000 meal donations/year over the past five years through Food Gatherers. The Scouts are working to do even more, considering that Food Gatherers served over 6.5 million meals in FY 2023! Scouting For Food is an opportunity for the Scouts to learn about the needs of our community, the many different ways Food Gatherers works with over 140 partner organizations to distribute food, and the power of working together to accomplish great things. Thank you for supporting Scouting for Food, which will provide healthy food and hope to the many people who face food insecurity every day.

To make a gift now, please click the DONATE button. Or, if you prefer to mail a check, please make it out to Food Gatherers with "Troop 4/Tim Esch" in the memo field, and send it to P.O. Box 131037, Ann Arbor, MI 48113.

In Support of Food Gatherers
Our Mission: Food Gatherers exists to alleviate hunger and eliminate its causes in our community.

We rescue local food and leverage state and national food resources for hunger relief. We lead a network of hunger relief providers and engage the public in the fight against hunger. We create and sustain innovative new food programs in response to emerging needs. We recognize that hunger will not be solved through the provision of food alone, so we advocate for policies and system changes to create an equitable food system.
