At Food Rescue our mission is simple:
We rescue excess food to share with those in need!
Food Facts by the numbers:
*Each year, about 27 percent of the food in America is thrown away.
*This works out to more than 300 pounds of wasted food per person nationwide.
*The value of this wasted food is estimated at $31billion annually.
*Costs associated with disposing of this food
(trash collection and landfill fees) tops $1billion per year.
*If 5 percent of this wasted food were recovered, it could feed four
million Americans each day.
The work of Food Rescue allows us to provide quality food for people in need and creates a community connection. Food Rescue also benefits restaurants by clearing unwanted product and inventory from storage, raising staff morale and gaining low cost advertisement,
which is good for the community and for business.
At Food Rescue we always celebrate our most consistent and generous supporters!
