Turn your products into nourishing meals.

Food Recovery Program

Thanks to the overwhelming support of more than 100 donors, we recovered over four million pounds of food, which provided our community with three-and-a-half million meals last year.

How does it work? We connect grocers and local retailers with one of our food safe trained partner agencies. Each agency collects edible, unsalable food and nonfood items on a daily, weekly, monthly or on-call basis. Every partner agency has cold, freezer, and ambient storage to safely accept and store donations.

Accepted Items

We only accept items that have a label with ingredient and allergen information.

Dairy
Deli
Frozen
Produce
Refrigerated
Meat (frozen on or before “best by”, “sell by”, or “use by” date)
