Donations of fresh produce, deli, dairy, frozen meats and baked goods are brought in by Food Rescue vans. driven by volunteers. More volunteers help sort the food to share with guests 3 times a week.
Food Rescue donations and volunteers make it economically possible to share food with over 10,500 pantry guests per year. How? By keeping the total cost down to an average of just $24, per person, per year! It is a truly remarkable program.
80% of all food shared is rescued from local grocers!
