This year we’ve partnered with Food Gatherers and they’ll have a booth at the BookFest. They’ll be accepting donations of both non-perishables and whole produce to help promote healthy eating. Donations can be dropped off at the Food Gatherers booth.
Food Gatherers guiding principle: We believe that in a land of plenty, no one should go hungry!
As the food rescue and food bank program serving Washtenaw County, Food Gatherers exists to alleviate hunger and eliminate its causes in our community. Help support this goal the day of the BookFest while also enjoying the books & authors.
Nicola’s Books will also be partnering with Food Gatherers. They’ll be selling copies of Leanne Brown’s Good and Cheap: Eat Well on $4/Day. For every case of books sold, Workman publishing will donate a case to Food Gatherers.
You’ll be able to find these two booths near each other in the Farmer’s Market the day of the book fest. Happy, healthy eating to all!
