Community Partners

Agency Partners

Food Gatherers is proud to partner with more than 140 non-profit agencies and programs in Washtenaw County providing direct food assistance in the form of emergency groceries, hot meals, and nutritious snacks to low-income adults, children, seniors, and veterans in Washtenaw County. We provide our partners with:

  • No-cost and very low-cost food 
  • Free customized food safety training 
  • Technical assistance, resources, and training opportunities to promote healthy food to beneficiaries
  • Training to enroll eligible individuals in federal food assistance programs (SNAP, WIC, etc.)

Food Gatherers is committed to keeping costs as low as possible for our partner programs so they may better serve our neighbors in need. Every dollar a partner organization or program saves on food is a dollar that can be directed to providing shelter, counseling, training, and other important work under its mission.
