FOOD RESCUE

Feeding Chittenden helps fight food waste and local hunger by rescuing over 1 million pounds of food every year. Food waste is a major environmental issue, and up to 40% of all food currently produced in the US is never consumed. This represents a major waste of resources as much of this excess food is sent to the landfill.
