Mission Statement

Save the Food is dedicated to putting nutritious food to its best use: feeding our community! We serve grocery stores in Austin that would otherwise waste thousands of pounds of perfectly edible food every day because it reaches its sell-by date or is slightly blemished. Our reliable daily service will pick up this food at no cost to the business, then deliver it to community centers, food pantries and soup kitchens across town.

Description

We pick-up recovered food from local grocery stores 7 days-a-week and feed hundreds of Austinites every week. Our model relies on a weekly commitment from our volunteers to collect the food and deliver it to our designated locations. We currently rescue 7,000 pounds of food every week, and are quickly expanding to 10,000. We are here for dedicated volunteers who want to end food insecurity in their own backyard.
