Big Picture: Mission, Vision, Strategies

  • Increasing access to nutritious foods builds healthier communities
  • Food loss and waste can be transformed into opportunities
  • Collaboration strengthens the hunger relief system
  • Ensuring equity of access to nutritious food across communities
  • Healthy food is a human right

To help feed hungry people with surplus nutritious produce, we:

Develop and share innovative hunger relief solutions; and,

Engage the public in hunger relief.

Develop strategies and best practices for three key areas impacting hunger and food waste:

1) The future of farming

2) The future of transportation and trucking

3) The future of food waste


Support and expand advocacy for legislation that addresses hunger issues at the city, county and state levels.

Assess and evaluate organizational activities and the effects of those activities to help reduce hunger and food waste.
