Mission Statement

A volunteer-based program that collects excess vegetables, fruit, and bread from local retail sources and farmers markets for distribution to meal programs, faith communities, and others in need.

Description

Gather Baltimore is a volunteer-based program, created by OSI fellow Arthur Morgan, that collects unsold vegetables, fruit and bread from the Baltimore Farmers' Market & Bazaar in downtown Baltimore and other sources for redistribution to local citizens in need. The baked goods, fruit and seasonal produce collected would otherwise be thrown away as it will not stay fresh until the next market. Gather Baltimore ensures that this food does not become waste but instead is made available to financially challenged families in communities where fresh healthy food is not readily accessible.
