Feeding Families & Our Environment One Vegetable at a Time
For 28 years now we have been on the forefront of rescuing produce. Our work would not be possible without your donations; each $25 donation allows us to rescue and redistribute over 750 lbs of produce.
Make a donation to help us rescue the next million pounds!
Our mission is to supplement meals in Arizona communities with fresh nutritious rescued produce while reducing food waste and methane gas from landfills
