GJ-Alleviating Hunger & Food Waste is a non-profit organization (501(c)(3)) that is designed to create a platform for volunteers to aid in the transfer of excess food from going to waste to areas such as food banks, food pantries, and soup kitchens.
GJ-Alleviating Hunger & Food Waste has the following objectives that it desires to tackle:
to provide a medium to transport surplus food from food providers to food storage areas such as food banks, food pantries, and soup kitchens
to engender a proper way to optimize the benefits of the volunteers and reduce the costs (time, monetary resources, etc.) incurred by the volunteers in this organization
to provide opportunities for volunteers to obtain volunteer hours, networking opportunities, and service experiences
to reduce and potentially alleviate the wastage of food in the local communities and counties.
As of now, GJ - Alleviating Hunger & Food Waste is working with three food providers, two Panera locations (6 Mile Rd, Livonia & Haggerty Rd, Livonia) and Dunkin' (Plymouth, MI). We are also working with the Salvation Army (Farmington, MI) and Auntie Na's Village (Detroit, MI).
