Take Action

The USDA indicates that 13.8% of households are experiencing food insecurity today, not knowing when or how they will access their next fresh, nutritious meal. By showing up to serve our communities with food resources, we are able to impact our communities in immeasurable ways.

Our national service partner Food Rescue US has a network of 42 locations across 24 states, where individuals and organizations provide resources for food insecure families and their community.
