Food drive honoring local scout raises 127,000 meals for Food Gatherers in Ann Arbor
ANN ARBOR, Mich. – An annual food drive by Ann Arbor Boy Scout Troop 4 has collected funds for Food Gatherers that will provide 127,000 meals. The funds will support Food Gatherers’ COVID-19 response and programs within Washtenaw County as community partners report a significant rise in food insecurity. For 15 years, the troop has hosted the “Tim Esch Scouting for Food Birthday Party” in honor of Eagle Scout Tim Esch as part of the food drive. Each year the annual food drive collects donations and non-perishable foods by going door-to-door. To honor him, the food drive is done on the weekend of his birthday.
