“Holy moly, there's so many people who need this food."

As an urban farmer, Arthur Gray Morgan was shocked by how much food was tossed away at the end of a farmer’s market. 

Morgan thought, “Holy moly, there's so many people who need this food."

So he founded Gather Baltimore.

Now Morgan and a group of volunteers are bringing healthy food access to neighborhoods throughout Baltimore. They harvest, pick up donations from local stores and collect unsold produce from the farmer’s market and deliver it to local communities - for free.  

Gather also partners with local organizations who historically had to pay for the food that helped them meet their missions.  Organizations like Moveable Feast, St Vincent De Paul's Beans and Bread, the Franciscan Center, the Oliver community, and various churches who provide meals to the people who need it most.

The need for this service is immense, so Morgan recently purchased a refrigerated food truck to scale up the program and increase their delivery schedule. 

He needs our help to pay off the loan and keep the truck on the road and making deliveries.

Recently, Gather delivered 4000 pounds of potatoes to Moveable Feast.  Then, 4 tons of fresh vegetables days later. Imagine how many people benefited from this food.  It wouldn't have happened without the truck or Gather Baltimore.

How can you help?

Gather Baltimore delivers the food where it's needed the most.  They get this food for free but need a reliable way to deliver to local communities and organizations. 

Your gift will enable them to continue making these critical deliveries, paying for the fuel, maintenance and insurance needed to keep the truck on the road.

Like most people I live a hectic life and who has the time for much exercise? Thanks to xtracycle now I do. By using my bike for daily activities I can get things done and get an hour plus work out in 15 minutes extra of my time, not a bad deal and beats taking the extra time going to the gym. In case you are still having trouble being motivated; the National Center of Disease Control says that inactivity is the #2 killer in the United States just behind smoking. ( http://www.cdc.gov/nccdphp/bb_nutrition/ ) Get out there and start living life! I can carry home a full shopping cart of groceries, car pool two kids or just get lost in the great outdoors camping for a week. Well I got go, another outing this weekend.
