TC Food Justice seeks innovative ways to combat hunger issues and reduce food waste in the greater Twin Cities area by being a link between those willing to help and those in need.
Founded on November 2nd, 2015, and incorporated on March 17th, 2016, Twin Cities Food Justice (TCFJ) is a nonprofit (501c3) organization that rescues "ugly" and ripe produce and other grocery products that have been pulled off of grocery stores shelves, before it is thrown in the garbage. We deliver these products to populations that have barriers to accessing healthy and fresh food, e.g. homeless shelters, community centers, and food shelves.
With the help of our fabulous and dedicated volunteers, we collect, sort, and transport food donations each week, and with minimal interference to the daily operations of grocery stores and food recipient organizations.
