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! - while creating more food security in our community.

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.
