A HUGE THANK YOU to all the donors who have allowed safe food to be diverted from the waste stream!
We continue to be involved with other organizations to accomplish our goals.
Feeding It Forward recovers excess perishable and prepared food from “food generators”, such as restaurants, food markets, grocery stores, and festivals. After volunteers and staff pick up the food, it is safely transported and, if needed, stored and distributed to other organizations that focus on actively feeding Napa County residents. Clients who benefit from our recovery actions are affordable housing residents, farm workers, homeless shelters, and the working low-income. We pride ourselves in not duplicating the efforts of other non-profits but instead supporting them.
Below are some of our accomplishments.
Thanks to our volunteers whose perseverance has allowed for so much success in recovering food for those in our communities who face food insecurity.
