One Million Pounds!!!

One Million Pounds Rescued
One Million Pounds Rescued

It sounds amazing even as we celebrate this tremendous milestone, but thanks to your support, we have rescued 1 million pounds of food!

This is means that 1 million pounds of wholesome, fresh food were diverted from going to the garbage, and instead was brought to the hungry. Over 800,000 meals were provided for the food insecure throughout 12 cities. This also means 188 tons of CO2 emissions that would have been emitted by food waste in landfills were prevented and hundreds of thousands of livestock were not slaughtered for no reason. From these large scale numbers, however, there have been so many heartwarming stories we have heard from our volunteers and homeless shelters we work with, and these stories are really what keep us going and growing. From Thanksgiving Day turkey running out and our volunteers arriving with more rescued turkey to recent mothers getting the milk they need for their babies, each and every one of these stories show us the potential that excess food has. They also represent food waste and hunger occuring simultaneously unnecessarily and the work we have ahead of us. 

Milestones like these would have been impossible without the support of amazing individuals like you. We have quintupled and then tripled over the past two years, and we never would have thought that we would have hit the one million mark so soon, but we are not slowing down yet. We are looking forward to hitting our next million even faster! Thank you so much again for choosing to come with us on this incredible journey! 

Best, 

Robert
