Healthy School Pantry Program

Healthy School Pantry Program

The Healthy School Pantry Program (HSPP) was created by Food Gatherers in 2012 to increase access to healthy food and provide families with a wide variety of produce! Each school year, Food Gatherers distributes fresh fruits and vegetables, along with simple, low-cost and nutritious recipes at selected schools throughout Washtenaw County. All families at participating schools receive a free, fresh produce box each month.
