ABOUT US

Saving Grace provides a unique service in the Omaha area by operating the only perishable food rescue dedicated to feeding the hungry with nutritious excess food that would otherwise go to waste. We do this by connecting healthy perishable food from local business with nonprofit agencies that use it to feed their clients.

COMMUNITY PARTNERS

Saving Grace partners with more than 50 grocery stores, caterers, event venues, schools, wholesalers, restaurants and convenience stores. The healthy fruits and vegetables, meats, dairy products, prepared and packaged meals, and bakery products they donate are picked up and delivered the same day to food pantries, shelters, transitional living facilities, children's centers, senior centers and a clinic that serve some of the most challenged residents of our community.

HOW YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Join Saving Grace’s grassroots movement to change the way our community thinks about food waste and hunger. Help Saving Grace feed the hungry with excess perishable food that otherwise would go to waste. A donation of $50 helps feed 250 people.

Saving Grace takes care of the food we need to feed 120 kids a week. Saving Grace’s donation adds up to 6,000 meals for kids each year.

Many organizations like Together that operate food pantries struggle to provide fresh and nutritious foods to our clients on a daily basis. Through our partnership with Saving Grace we gain a consistent supply of nutritious and fresh foods daily. In addition, their coordinated efforts allow us pantries to focus on what’s most important, and that is serving those in need.

Partnering with you has been a total blessing. As we strive to help families and seniors in need and help to restore their dignity, it is an absolute joy to give them options they would not otherwise have and let them have the ability to really do their own shopping vs. just being given food they may or may not use.
