Amount of Food Rescued Sets Record

Thanks to the support of our 37 food donors, Saving Grace rescued and redistributed 713,721 pounds of healthy perishable food, valued at more than $1.2 million, in 2017. This is an increase of 17.2% over the 2016 total. This brought the lifetime total of food rescued since operations began just over four years ago to 2,036,279 pounds through the end of 2017.

The Food Recovery Hierarchy prioritizes actions to prevent and divert wasted food.
