The Hunger Site
The Hunger Site is the world's first online activism site. It gives Internet users the daily opportunity to quickly make a difference in the fight to end hunger. In less than 5 seconds, visitors can click on the "Give Free Food" button and, at no cost to them, send food to the hungry in countries like Bosnia, Lebanon, Indonesia, Afghanistan, Honduras, Mozambique, Eritrea and the United States - anywhere there's a need . . . This is a great site. If you've never visited, it is worth a few moments of time. ~JT

Food Gatherers is not only Michigan's first food rescue program, but the first program of its kind to be founded by a for-profit business, Zingerman's Delicatessen.
