Mission Statement

Our mission is to build community and reduce food waste, one food rescue at a time.

Description

We focus on the environmental impact that excess food has when thrown into the waste stream-when in a landfill or an incinerator, food emits methane which is 28 times more toxic than carbon dioxide.

We keep good, edible food out of the waste stream by using a volunteer driven, hyper-local, direct delivery model. Most food producers and food businesses want to donate their excess food. The two obstacles are lack of transportation and lack of a community partner to accept the food when it is available. That is where Haven’s Harvest comes in! Because we focus on perishable or prepared foods, that only have a few days left to be eaten, it is very important that we match the food donated by a partner site to a receiving site that can use the food for their community.

We create and sustain good relationships-with our food donors, receiving partners and our volunteers.
