How to Help

Help Feed Hungry Bellies, Not Landfills

Your donation to Saving Grace Perishable Food Rescue will help with our efforts to provide healthy perishable food to nearly 40 other nonprofit organizations that feed the hungry in our community. When you contribute to Saving Grace, you help ensure our neighbors have access to healthy food and you help us educate the public about ways to reduce food waste.

Make a donation to Saving Grace in honor of someone special in your life and we’ll mail or email them a note acknowledging your gift. Download a donation form or include their information when you make an online donation.

Your donation makes a difference:

  • A $50 donation provides healthy meals for 250 hungry neighbors.
  • A $100 donation pays for two months of routine truck maintenance.
  • A $500 donation pays for fuel for one month for one of our refrigerated trucks.

Ask your favorite food partners what they do with their excess edible food. Ask your caterer to place smaller trays on the buffet so excess that has not been served can be rescued. Let them know about Saving Grace Perishable Food Rescue!

Criteria for Food Donations:e

  • Food to feed a minimum of 20-25 people, in order to curb our truck expenses.
  • Excess food must have been properly maintained (refrigerated or frozen) and held in the kitchen without being served due to health regulations. We do not accept food that has been opened to the public. Please consider using smaller serving trays so we can rescue more of your excess food.
  • Please give us as much advance notice as possible. We do not warehouse food; it is delivered the same day we receive it. Our pick-ups are made during morning hours with deliveries to our local non-profits feeding our hungry neighbors that afternoon.
  • If you have an evening function where there may be excess food, please make arrangements to refrigerate the food overnight; we will collect it the following morning.

Thank you! Spread the word and encourage food donations!
