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.

Our Mission

Hole Food Rescue's mission is to reduce food waste and food insecurity in our community.

Hole Food Rescue was founded in 2013 on the simple principle that we have what we need to change the world if we look in the right places. For our founder, Ali Dunford-Milburn, that meant preventing perfectly edible food from contributing to the alarming amount of landfill waste, and giving it to local organizations that could put it to good use.
