Food rescue, also called food recovery or food salvage, is the practice of gathering edible food that would otherwise go to waste from places such as restaurants, grocery stores, produce markets, or dining facilities and distributing it to local food banks, food pantries, and emergency food programs.
The graph below shows the amount of food we have rescued and turned into healthy, balanced, frozen meals that were distributed throughout St. Joseph County.
Cultivate has long focused on helping those underserved in our community, and those who have been overlooked. Through our Food Rescue program, we can provide meals to the needy for as little as $0.75 per meal! A $35 donation provides 50 meals for members of our community. Help us achieve one of our goals of ensuring no one goes hungry in northeast Indiana by supporting us today!
