Food Reclamation Program
Our Food Reclamation Program is equal parts community compassion and process engineering. No good food goes to waste. Millions of pounds of unsorted food arrives at our warehouse every year, donated by community food drives and generous grocers. All items are cleaned, sorted, and measured against the strictest of quality control standards.
From there, it’s sent into our warehouse shopping floor no longer called “salvage” but reassigned the title of “Sorted Grocery.” Words have power, and we believe in the importance of using language that communicates the appropriate message. This program is volunteer driven and without the wonderful people in our community, we would not be able to reach the tables of so many in need.
