HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Millions of people around the globe are unable to get access to food, while countless meals are thrown away each day. We will get your extra food to those who suffer from food insecurity.  Donations of "apparently wholesome food" donated in "good faith" to a "nonprofit organization" are protected by the Bill Emerson Food Donation Act.

DESCRIPTION

Donate your excess food of any kind and in any amount, sporadically or on a set schedule. We’ll distribute it to nearby organizations to help provide meals to people facing food insecurity.
