Zingerman's Fights Hunger!

About This Campaign

Sharing food for the holidays is a Zingerman's tradition that we want to extend to all members of our community. For the whole month of November, the Zingerman's Community of Businesses will be collecting funds and food to help ensure that no one in our community goes hungry this holiday season.

Did you know that Food Gatherers was founded by Zingerman’s Delicatessen?

A few days before Thanksgiving in 1988, volunteers borrowed a van and collected 50 pounds of vegetables, bread, milk, and eggs from half a dozen grocery stores and restaurants. The food was quickly re-distributed to hot meal programs in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti.

Today Food Gatherers is the food bank and food rescue serving all of Washtenaw County. Right now the need is greater than ever - click DONATE to help feed our hungry neighbors during this crisis, and beyond.
