No Neighbor Hungry, No Food Wasted

Backpack Program

68 hours is how long a child may go without food on the weekend. Cultivate’s flagship program takes rescued food and turns it into nutritious frozen meals. Those meals are then delivered to schools and sent home with children to fill the 68 hour gap. They return to school on Monday ready to focus on learning!

Cultivate Cares Food Network

13% of our neighbors face food insecurity. Cultivate Cares Food Network is the newest and fastest growing redistribution program. CCFN takes rescued food and redistributes it to pantries, soup kitchens, and other organizations that provide help to those who are food insecure. This food and support allow these organizations to run more efficiently and help more people. 

Meat Hunger

To fund the purchase of 4-H fair animals which will be utilized to add the necessary proteins to our student backpack meals and to distribute to food pantries and soup kitchens in our Cultivate Cares Food Network.
