Food is Love, Not Waste
Over 1 in 3 families in Charlotte are food insecure.
40% of all food produced in the U.S. ends up in the trash before ever reaching consumers.
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.

Since launching in Charlotte in 2019...

Feeding Charlotte (formerly Food Connection CLT) has rescued over 12,000 pounds of freshly prepared meats, vegetables and whole grains, with no signs of slowing down. We will not rest until we end food insecurity in our beloved Queen City.
