Together we can end hunger.

About 1 million residents across Tampa Bay struggle to find their next meal on a daily basis. Working together with retailers, manufacturers, farmers, and distributors, we are combatting food waste and ensuring that nourishing meals reach those who need them most. We are committed to this mission, redirecting excess fresh, shelf-stable and prepared food away from landfills and towards the dinner plates of our community members in need – recycling 1.6 million meals each week.
