Bridging the gap between waste and want since 1981

Food For Free improves access to healthy food within our community by rescuing food that would otherwise go to waste, strengthening the community food system, and creating new distribution channels to reach under-served populations. We envision a future where everyone in our community—regardless of age, income or ability—has consistent access to fresh, healthy, delicious food.

Through a combination of food rescue, farming, and transportation services, we give food programs year-round access to fresh fruits and vegetables, while our direct service programs bring food to students, seniors, and others most at risk of hunger.

Our programs address not only short-term hunger, but also the long-term health effects of food insecurity and poor nutrition.

In addition, food rescue reduces food waste.
