You’re invited to the 29th annual Grillin’ for Food Gatherers, a family-friendly community picnic with a serious mission. Grillin’ benefits Food Gatherers’ work to alleviate hunger where we live. As a Grillin’ guest, you can help your neighbors struggling with food insecurity.

Feast on gourmet grilled sausages, delectable side dishes and desserts from more than 30 favorite local food purveyors including Zingerman’s, Grange Kitchen & Bar, Frita Batidos, The Earle, The Brinery, and more. Treat yourself to a unique selection of regional microbrews like Short’s or Lagunitas or sip a glass of wine while you peruse the food-inspired silent auction!

Enjoy eclectic music including blues and rock beats by George Bedard and the Kingpins; the acoustic hip hop/indie folk sounds of Nadim Azzam; jazz, folk and contemporary tunes for ukulele by singer Magdalen Fossom; plus Dan and the Harmony Grits. ann arbor’s 107one will broadcast the event live with Grillin’s Master of Ceremonies, Martin Bandyke.
