Angell Elementary Eagles
Our school was named after the longest-serving president of the University of Michigan. He said that he wanted to “provide an uncommon education for the common man.” We try to fulfill that statement at Angell by challenging students to excel, develop skills for self-advocacy and problem-solving. We also encourage our students to figure out ways to give back to their community. We love the mission of Food Gatherers and hope that the money we raise will benefit many families.

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!
