Mission Statement

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.

Description

Objectives:

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.

Programs/Achievements:

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).
