Did you know?
Food production in the U.S. uses 10% of the total energy budget, 50% of the land, and 80% of freshwater
yet, 40% of food in the U.S. is wasted.
Our Impact on the Environment
When food is wasted, many other resources are subsequently wasted: water, fossil fuel, human power, fertilizer, money, packaging, time, and love.
WE PRIORITIZE OUR ACTIONS BASED ON THE “FOOD RECOVERY HIERARCHY"
We help our food donors reduce their excess food inventory by reporting how much we rescue from them.
Our main focus as an organization is rescuing excess nutritious food and redistributing it back into our community to those who need it most.
Anything we rescue that is unfit for human consumption, we send to the animals of Haderlie Farms and the Lovely Homestead.
Any food the farm animals don’t like (e.g. citrus) goes directly into compost piles.
We put as little as possible (non-recyclable plastics, meat, etc) into the waste stream.
