In America, stores and restaurants throw away LOTS of perfectly good food: one-quarter of all food produced in the US.

In America, LOTS of children, adults, and seniors do not always have enough to eat: 1 in 6 of all Americans.

In North Florida, Waste Not Want Not prevents the discarding of food that can be used to fight hunger here at home. Our volunteers rescue surplus food within a 15-mile radius of Orange Park and provide it to charities serving the less-fortunate in 14 counties.

Last year, Waste Not Want Not volunteers rescued food 364 days (thank you Hurricane Ian) and distributed approximately 2 million pounds of food to people struggling to make ends meet.
