Busch's Fresh Food Market will kick off its "Season of Sharing" holiday food drive Nov. 12, continuing through Nov. 21.
During this time, customers can purchase pre-made "Ready to Go" food donation bags filled with items to be given to a family in need. Customers are asked to donate $10 for each bag. They can also drop off non-perishable food in the food drive bin located in each store.
Alternately, customers can make a contribution of any amount at the Busch's checkout registers. Dollars go directly to Food Gatherers.
Customers will also be able to purchase $5 gift cards for produce and $10 gift cards for meats. Gift card purchases will be converted into produce and meat donations to Food Gatherers at the value of the total amount of gift card purchases.
Additionally, customers can donate their bottle return slips. Dollars go directly to Food Gatherers in Ann Arbor.
