Creating a more sustainable food system.
Hole Food Rescue distributes excess food from grocery stores, bakeries, farms, and several local businesses to organizations serving the at-risk, in-need residents of Teton County, WY, ultimately reducing the amount of edible food sent to Bonneville County Landfill (101 miles away!), and increasing access to nutritious foods.
Participating food retailers set aside unsellable, yet edible, food products in designated areas for HFR volunteers to pick-up. These food donations are collected by HFR volunteers on a daily basis and brought to the HFR Headquarters where they are sorted and organized for tailored donations. Weather permitting, you may find HFR volunteers biking food deliveries around town with a HFR bike trailer.
Hole Food Rescue sources excess nutritious food and redistributes it to community organizations that get it those who need it most, aiming to reduce overall food waste and food insecurity in Teton County, WY.
At Hole Food Rescue, we live by our five core values:

- We go the extra mile
