A Year in Review: Annual Report 2012

Posted on by Eileen Spring

 

More chard please!  Three years ago, we embarked together on a journey to get more healthy food to people in need. The quality of the food we serve is just as important as the quantity, and we believe that fresh, nutritious food matters.

Thanks to strategic nutrition initiatives and your generous support, Food Gatherers has made great strides toward providing healthy options for our neighbors in need as part of the Food Security Plan. Today, one in two
emergency food pantries offers fresh produce to clients, compared to one in five in 2008. We have increased our distribution of nutritious food tremendously, and in fiscal year 2012, 55% of our total distribution was fresh vegetables, fruit or protein.

To more efficiently store these nutritious products, we are expanding our warehouse facility, which will drastically increase our cold and freezer storage as well as our total distribution capacity. We are excited about the changes in store and about expanding our clients’ access to healthy, high quality foods.

All of this would not be possible without you – the volunteers, donors, food rescue partners and staff – who have taken up the fight against hunger where we live. We are proud to share the accomplishments you have made possible in this report.

Thank you for gathering with us.
