we turn excess into access
Hole Food Rescue distributes excess food to organizations which serve at-risk residents of Teton County.
It's pretty simple, really. Participating food retailers set aside unsellable, yet perfectly edible, food products. Our wonderful volunteers pick up these food donations and get them to local food pantries, shelters, after-school programs, and more. The result: More food security in our community and a drastic reduction in the amount of edible food sent to Bonneville County Landfill (101 miles away).
we rescue Excess inventory from local grocers and other food retailers. Then it's redistributed in the community.
