Our impact .

Reduce costs.

We provide timely recovery of healthy food pre-disposal. This food is protected under the Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Act and prepared within 24 hours.

Engage the community.

Our volunteers and recipients are local, and we serve all at-risk individuals with low nutritional access.

Become a Food Donor

Feed someone.

We believe in healthy choices and sustainability, and are firmly committed to both. Our program fills a nutritional gap left by other hunger relief organizations.

Your city.

Be revolutionary.

Our parent organization has recovered over half a million pounds of food using 80% bicycle power, and is as financially efficient as the largest redistributors.

Lend a hand.

Our program is accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds. We oversee volunteer schedules in the robot and each one hour shift is very flexible.


Sustainable empowerment.

Bicycles emit 14 times less carbon dioxide per kilometer than cars, and every pound of food you take is diverted from a landfill to where it's needed.
