What is a food rescue?

What is a food rescue?

20% of the food we receive to distribute to the community is surplus food from grocery and other retail stores.

We call these “food rescues” and they prevent food from going to waste. Volunteers quickly sort and stock surplus food that comes in for distribution in the pantry.

Last year, WayForward’s pantry received 207,682 pounds of food from these channels.
