Turning Rescued Food Into Nourishment

Thanks to the tremendous support of the Ag community, grocers and local retailers, we recover millions of pounds of nutritious food each year that we are able to provide to our community.

Our joint reclamation efforts with local Ag to divert good produce from landfills and put it into the hands of residents in need across Monterey County has saved huge quantities of nutrient-packed fruits and vegetables from going to waste.

We connect grocers and local retailers with one of our food safety trained partners. Each partner collects edible, unsalable food and nonfood items on a daily, weekly, monthly or on-call basis. Every partner has cold, freezer, and ambient storage to safely accept and store donations.
