Waste Not Want Not, a volunteer-based group, exists to prevent the discarding of items that can be used to fight hunger and poverty in our community. We do this by rescuing food daily from numerous sources for distribution to local charitable organizations, and through other cost-effective, volunteer-driven initiatives.
Watch our videos to learn more about how Waste Not Want rescues food for those in need.
We currently make 130 scheduled rescues every week, using our truck to make large rescues and serve over 78 groups weekly. Our volunteers now use our boxtruck instead of their pickup trucks to make large rescues.
