eliminate food deserts.
What We Do
We're on a mission to lessen food inequality and its negative effects
End Food Waste
40% of total food is wasted
We collect excess food from places including Trader Joes, Slow Dough, and Bread Man with the help of Second Servings that otherwise would have been thrown away.
Since 2018, across our fifteen market events, we have collected distributed over 9,000 pounds of food. Our donations range from fresh fruits and vegetables to baked goods to packaged meats.
Eliminate Food Deserts
1 in 5 people are food insecure
We distribute food to multi-service centers in neighborhood that qualify as food deserts. (Food Deserts = areas that lack Grocery Stores with Healthy Food Options)
Currently, we have expanded to two locations: the Sunnyside Multi-service center and the Kashmere Multi-service center. In total we helped deliver food to nearly 1,250 Houstonians!
