Athens Food Rescue fights food insecurity in the Athens community while diverting food from landfills.
Often restaurants, hospitals, hotels, and stores, have food items that they deem as waste and throw away. These items can be at expiration, slightly blemished, excess leftover at the end of the day. All this food can still be perfectly edible and acceptable for donation. In these same communities there are organizations that struggle to feed all who come to their doors. A food rescue group collects this food “waste” just-in-time from donors and redistributes it to local charities.
That’s where Athens Food Rescue happens.
