Your Local Community Grocery Store
At Busch’s, we believe it’s important to be an active member of your community, and not just another store in the neighborhood.
Food Gatherers is a non-profit food rescue organization that collects and distributes food to over 150 community programs. In the past five years, Busch's contributed 372,601 pounds of food from Washtenaw County stores and helped Food Gatherers raise enough funds to provide an additional 787 tons of food to hungry people in our community.
Forgotten Harvest “rescued” 48.8 million pounds of food last year by collecting surplus prepared and perishable food from 800 sources, including grocery stores, fruit and vegetable markets, restaurants, caterers, dairies, farmers, wholesale food distributors and other Health Department-approved sources. This donated food, which would otherwise go to waste, is delivered free-of-charge to 280 emergency food providers in the Metro Detroit area.
