We are Jasnoor and Sumedha and we organized this fundraiser for Michigan Medicine’s Maggie’s Marketplace because we believe it is an impactful program to fundraise for during the COVID-19 pandemic. There is a lot of fear in our community right now and we do not want lack of food to be a worry for those in need. That’s why we are fundraising for Maggie’s Marketplace, a food pantry in Ypsilanti.
Did you know - More than 40% of the patients of Michigan Medicine’s Ypsilanti Health Center (YHC) face food insecurity. That led to the opening of Maggie’s Marketplace in 2017. The food pantry (named for the health center’s former medical director, Maggie A. Riley, M.D.) focuses on healthy foods and offers a variety of perishable and non-perishable items at no cost to patients. In its first two years, Maggie’s Marketplace served more than 7,600 people and provided over 62,000 pounds of food. We need your help to stock the shelves at Maggie’s Marketplace!
