Food For Free rescues fresh food—food that might otherwise go to waste—and distributes it within the local emergency food system where it can reach those in need.

Through a combination of food rescue, farming, and transportation services, the organization gives food programs year-round access to fresh fruits and vegetables, while its delivery program brings food directly to isolated seniors and people with disabilities.

Its programs address not only short-term hunger, but obesity, diet-related disease, and other long-term health effects of food insecurity and poor nutrition.

In addition, food rescue—also called salvage or gleaning—reduces food waste.
