Mission Statement

To relieve hunger in our community by rescuing surplus prepared and perishable food and donating it to emergency food providers.

Description

We pick up fresh, perishable food 6 days per week in refrigerated trucks and deliver the food that day to soup kitchens, homeless shelters, etc. In 2012, we delivered over 42 million pounds of food that might otherwise have gone to waste, to over 200 agencies in metro Detroit that serve those in need.

Friendly staff, everyone was very welcoming and the project was great!

Great organization - not only fights hunger, but also fights waste of food that would otherwise be thrown out. It's fun & eye-opening to ride on the truck & see how much food can be rescued, and how grateful the agencies & people are that we deliver it to.
