Friendship Donations Network rescues fresh, nutritious food that would otherwise be thrown away from stores and farms and redistributes it to neighbors in need.
The food rescue organization provides food donations to community programs, including food pantries, low-income housing communities, and low-wage worksites, among other places. Each week 2,000 people are served by the program, and nearly 1,400 pounds of good food is diverted each day from the landfill.
A network of 200 volunteers and one part-time employee accomplish those goals with the food donations from local supermarkets, restaurants, bakeries, farms, dining halls, farmers and food processors. Since its start in 1988, FDN has served a vital role in providing healthy food to needy households, while helping our community reduce the amount of useable food being thrown away.
