Partner Food Bank rescues 2.2 million pounds of food
Our Partner food bank rescued 2.2 million pounds of food from being dumped. Food went to help hungry kids & seniors instead of the landfill. Food banks are not only helping feed the hungry they are also helping to save the environment. Rescued food distributions are healthier than traditional non-perishable food drives. Rescued food is the short shelf life food like fresh fruits and veggies. Non-perishable food is often loaded with salt and all fiber removed to extend shelf life. So rescued food is free, a sustainable way to help feed the hungry and better for the environment. Fruits with a few brown spots are better off going to feed hungry families instead of clogging up our landfills and creating methane gas pollution.
