Bach Elementary Food Drive
My team is myself, Tina Champagne and Maria Bajorek. We are specials teachers at Bach Elementary. We decided to join together to help stop hunger through this unprecedented year! It has been stressful and challenging and we want our community to know that we care and want everyone to be healthy, happy and safe.

About This Campaign
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused food insecurity in our community to rise dramatically since March 2020. Feeding America estimates that overall food insecurity in Washtenaw County has risen by 36%, while child food insecurity has risen by 100%. With continued school closures and/or hybrid attendance, high unemployment, and uncertainty about our economic recovery it is anticipated that food insecurity levels will remain high well into 2022. Food Gatherers, the food bank and food rescue program serving our community has seen a dramatic rise in need and has distributed record-breaking amounts of food to feed our neighbors over the last 12 months. When children don't go to school, they lose access to an important source of food - free and reduced price meals.
Since last March, Food Gatherers has worked closely with local school districts to supplement their modified meal programs with groceries and fresh produce, and to make food available to families that cannot access the meal programs now in place.
Your gift today will support Food Gatherers work feeding children throughout our community. Thank you!
