Welcome

Feeding It Forward works to reduce waste and alleviate hunger in Napa County through collaborative efforts. We rescue excess fresh food from donors and deliver it to organizations fighting hunger in our community.

Food Donation

By rescuing excess perishable and prepared food within Napa County and delivering it to other organizations serving our most vulnerable children, adults, and families, we can address critical issues of food insecurity and wasted food in our communities.

On the Road against Food Insecurity during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Thank you all who have donated time and resources as we help those in need of the multiple emergencies we have faced recently.

It has allowed us to provide the ongoing transport of increased volumes of food in our community, so it can go where the real need is!

The monetary donations help cover the variable costs (fuel, supplies, etc.) of transporting the fresh, perishable food safely and successfully to their final destinations- the agencies that serve those in need throughout Napa County.

Thanks to everyone for making our community safer & healthier!
