“I used to feel so disconnected from my community, but

Volunteering at HFR has opened me up to the amazing, innovative, supportive, positive, beautiful side of humans we don’t often see. I wish more people took advantage of this opportunity.
It’s life-changing.”

Tristan J. / Volunteer since 2017

"We love Hole Food Rescue!

We support HFR because of the huge impact it has on the social and environmental sustainability of Teton county. The people are fantastic. Being a volunteer is consistently rewarding. It is truly incredible how much food is diverted from our waste stream through the combined efforts of volunteers and staff."
