In 2018, our Food Recovery Program saved over 40,000 pounds of consumable food that would otherwise have gone into landfills-- feeding those in need and benefitting our environment. This year we hope to increase that with YOUR help.
Recovered Food Delivery Drivers-help us pick up and/or deliver food donated by stores and restaurants. This food is removed from the waste stream and landfills and instead provides local families in need or individuals with chronic illness with fresh, healthy food. TOUCH (Together Our Unity Can Heal) provides healthy food and supportive services to our neighbors with chronic illnesses. TOUCH works with our partner organizations in Rockland Community Against Hunger (RCAH) to distribute food to over 30 area food pantries. Prevent hunger by helping our neighbors in need and protect our environment by keeping food out of landfills!
Help rescue food from local stores and deliver it to a participating food program. Volunteer drivers can commit to a weekly food rescue run or fill in when needed. Most food rescue runs take about an hour and can be done using your own vehicle. Volunteers should be able to do some lifting.
Businesses, church or worship groups, teen groups, and community organizations are always welcome to volunteer with us!
We'll work with your schedule.
