Put an End to Wasted Food.

Keep food out of the landfill and in the hands of our community.

Work in the food industry? The Food Recovery Program reduces food insecurity and addresses climate change by recovering and redistributing nutritious surplus food to neighbors in need.

Want to help reduce food waste in our community?  Volunteer to be a Food Recovery Driver!  Choose your own schedule, some shifts only take 30 minutes!

Learn how our freedge packed with free nutritious food breaks down barriers to food access. Open to all, it is stocked with garden produce, shelf-stable pantry items, and individual portions of surplus food from local restaurants.

How it Works

Our Food Recovery Program matches our awesome volunteers with commercial donors and recipient agencies or freedges to reduce organic waste in the landfill and redistribute it to community members.  Watch this video to see how it works.

Start a Program in your Community
