Food Rescue and REDistribution

No Neighbor Hungry,

No Food Wasted.

We’re committed to sustainability, stewardship and feeding the hungry in our community.

63,000 people across the three counties we serve are food insecure. That means they aren’t sure where their next meal is coming from.

133 billion pounds of food are wasted in the USA every year.

That means wasted resources are going straight into landfills. Additionally, once in landfills, this food gives off methane gas which has long-term environmental effects.

We’re not letting that happen in our community! We’re rescuing over one million pounds of food each year, cooking it, packaging it, freezing it and feeding people instead of watching our neighbors go hungry.


Compassion, Volunteers, and a

whole lot of Logistics!

Local grocery stores, restaurants, manufacturers, and distributors let us know they have excess, good, unused food. 

We send out our fleet of refrigerated trucks to rescue the food to prevent it from reaching a landfill. 

Once that food comes into our warehouse our staff and volunteers organize it, inventory it, store it, prepare it, or package it into our trademark frozen meals. 

These meals and other pantry staples are sent out to local churches, food banks, homeless shelters, and schools to feed the most vulnerable in our community.

We’re committed to the mission:

No Neighbor Hungry,

No Food Wasted.

Join the Cause!


As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, volunteers are our lifeblood. Volunteers pack meals, drive trucks, cook food, wash dishes, and promote our work across the community. If making a measurable impact on the lives of people in our community sounds like something you want to be a part of, sign up to volunteer. We’d love to have you join the Cultivate Family!
