FOOD RESCUE PROGRAM
The largest and longest-running program at TC Food Justice is our Food Rescue Program. This program is the core of our work. We find donors with excess produce that they wish to donate instead of discard; partner with nearby hunger relief organizations to plan weekly produce drop-offs; and coordinate our volunteers to collect, sort, and deliver the food by bike or by car. We are proud to serve smaller grocers and hunger relief organizations that have been excluded from traditional, larger-scale food rescue programs. We deliver food the same or next day, maximizing its quality and likelihood of being consumed. All our deliveries operate free of cost to donor and recipient organizations.
