Spring Food Drive
Help FEED Scarlett Families and families in our community. Scarlett Student Council has teamed up with Food Gatherers to raise money to provide food to those who need it most! The COVID-19 pandemic created a “perfect storm” of increased demand for food, declines in donated food, and significant disruptions to volunteer programs, distribution methods, and other core aspects of the Food Gatherers operating model. Food Gatherers' network of food pantries, grocery distributions, and meal distributions throughout the county is and will continue to be a critical resource for families, individuals, and seniors struggling with food insecurity.

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!
