Hunger and food insecurity are significant problems facing our country and our community, but Table to Table’s ability to solve the problem is significant as well. Over 100 billion pounds of food (or 40% of the food available for human consumption in the United States) is literally thrown out each year. Each day we redistribute nutritious, wholesome food that would otherwise be wasted at no cost to either the food donors or the recipient agencies we serve.
In 2020, we rescued enough food for 38 million meals. Because we deliver food at no cost to the agencies that receive it, precious dollars that these organizations would otherwise spend on food and its transportation can be reallocated for the educational, rehabilitative and therapeutic programs intrinsic to their missions.
