Help Gather Baltimore Provide Fresh Healthy Vegetables & Fruit to the Food Insecure in Baltimore

Help feed families in need of a helping hand.
Gather Baltimore started as a volunteer organization that collected vegetables that were destined for the waste steam from a single local farmers' market with a couple of people and a pickup truck. Now that Gather Baltimore is now 1 years old, they collect more than 12 tons of food and feed on average 500+ families per week.
It’s still all healthy fresh vegetables and fruit. It's still all volunteer.
Gather Baltimore is raising funds to keep the food moving to those who need it most. They are extremely close to reaching their fundraising goal for their current Give Corps “farmers markets to food deserts” campaign.
PLEASE GIVE what you can and then tell others about this campaign. They have 3 days left to raise $2323 so that the program can continue to make a real, boots on the ground difference in the lives of Baltimore families in need of a helping hand.
Your generosity and kindness make a huge deference. Thank you.
