The “gang” from Feeding America West Michigan Food Bank is making regular appearances at Rockford’s ever-popular Saturday Farm Market, seeking donations of fresh and healthy Michigan fruits, vegetables and baked goods from market goers and vendors. This Saturday they ended up with a pickup truck full (approx. 500 lbs.) of the very best the market has to offer. The day’s donations are delivered to area food banks for distribution to their clients. Look for Feeding America on Saturday mornings at the north end of the market.
