Food Rescue US

  • 14 people are interested

La Soupe bridges the gap between food waste and hunger. Our chef based model utilizes our volunteer network to rescue perishables from farms, grocers and wholesalers. Our highly talented transform team of chefs and volunteers transform this food into healthy soupes and meals. Our soupes and meals are distributed to roughly 100 share partners that feed the food insecure and are available to purchase at our retail storefront. We have a well established program of rescuing prepared overages from restaurants and catering and deliver directly to agencies that feed the hungry.

Volunteers are a vital part of La Soupe's mission to Rescue, Transform, and Share. Every time you volunteer, you will leave knowing that you have helped to provide 15,5000 servings per week for our neighbors living in food insecurity. Since 2016, over 200 active volunteers contributed 9,270+ hours of service to La Soupe. We need volunteers every day to help keep our 81 share agencies fed.

For Food Runner volunteer opportunities we use Food Rescue US. You will pick up surplus food from our Food Donors (grocers, restaurants, etc.) and deliver it to La Soupe. Or, from La Soupe, deliver to our receiving agencies. Typically this will take an hour of your time.

For Kitchen Help volunteering we use a system called Duplie to schedule and self manage kitchen shifts. Come to La Soupe and help in various ways - sorting, cleaning, storing produce, chopping and light food prep. Although currently we do not have volunteering in house, if you would like to be added to the waiting list, please email her at alison@lasoupe.org.

For Culinary Education volunteering we work on a manual schedule and you can contact kristen@lasoupe.org.

About Food Rescue US

Location:

1127 High Ridge Rd, Suite 338, Stamford, CT 06905, US

Mission Statement

Food Rescue US is committed to ending American food insecurity by directly transferring fresh, usable food that would have otherwise been thrown away from restaurants, grocers and other food industry sources to food insecure families throughout the U.S.

Description

Food Rescue US exists as a platform for the rescue of healthy surplus food, to be direcctly transferred to those in need. Hunger is no longer just a challenge to the homeless and jobless, hunger happens near us; it happens to families we know, to people with jobs and homes who are trying desperately to make life work.

What Can We Do?

Join us! Become a food rescuer and help those in need in your own community!
This platform is a toolbox of information and we focus on training, technology, and coordination to make volunteering and donating as simple and effective as possible. We're not saying that ending unnecessary hunger in our communities will be easy, but we do believe it's simple and that all of our efforts when combined form something substantial. In this case, since we began, that is over 17 million meals delivered and 28 million pounds of food saved from landfill.
