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.
