Rescuing surplus, freshly prepared meals to reduce food waste and feed the hungry.
What we do

A Simple Formula

Our goal is simple: to reduce food waste by connecting the dots between those with too much food to those without enough. How do we do that? By partnering with organizations to rescue their leftover fresh meals and deliver them to local nonprofits who feed the hungry.

Chew on these numbers...

12% of households in Mecklenburg County are food insecure.
1 in 6 households with children are not sure where their next meal will come. 
1 in 10 Senior Citizens are food insecure in Mecklenburg County. 
40% of all food produced in the US ends up in the landfill before reaching consumers. 
133 Billion pounds of food is wasted per year. 
$1,866 is the annual cost of food wasted by the average American Family. 
8% of all greenhouse gas emissions each year are due to food loss and waste.

Can't believe those numbers?
Neither could we.

This means families in our community go hungry while thousands of pounds of food go to waste every day. That is why we strive to reduce these numbers in the Charlotte community while creating a sustainable solution for wasted food.

The problem is not a lack of food in the United States, it's a distribution problem.

So we decided to create a very simple formula that benefits both food donors and food recipients: We connect those with excess food to nonprofits that serve the food insecure and homeless population. Nonprofits like Salvation Army Center for Hope and Safe Alliance are just examples of recipients we serve to combat this issue.
