Food Rescue, a Goodwill of Northern Michigan program, collects soon-to-expire, fresh, healthy food and distributes it to 48 food pantries, shelters, and community meal sites same day, free of charge. Everything we do at Food Rescue is driven by one core purpose: reduce food waste and increase access to food for hungry people in our communities.
Over the last 10 years we have rescued over 9 million pounds from 150 local grocers, bakers and farmers and delivered to 48 local pantries and community meals programs. That’s 9 million pounds of fresh, wholesome, soon-to-expire food kept out of the landfill and redirected to the plates of our hungry neighbors in need.
Through scheduled pick-ups and deliveries from food donor to recipient locations throughout our five county service area we give healthy, GOOD food to hungry neighbors in need; reduce the costs for food pantries, and similar organizations; keep GOOD food from going to waste and save food donors money through reduced disposal costs and tax benefits.
