Edible food is the largest single component of the refuse stream going into our garbage dumps. We have a very simple idea that can help change that. Instead of throwing away edible food at the end of the day. We want to encourage “all” TV, film, commercial production and studio commissaries to partner with us by donating their leftover food so that we can distribute it to our other partner organizations that serve the needy. Creating a virtuous loop.
We want to alleviate hunger.
We want to prevent waste.
We want to encourage sustainable practices.
We want to create jobs in our local communities.
A shrinking corporate presence that used to provide philanthropic contributions and a growing population of poor and unemployed are straining the resources of many local food banks to the utmost. Let’s do our part and change things for the better.
There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.
Yoav Getzler • Executive Director
We value the prudent use of resources. Our goal is to make rescuing usable edibles as common as recycling paper, glass and plastics is now.
The idea is very simple. Instead of studios and production companies throwing away edible food we recycle it to our partner organizations that serve the needy.
Edible food is the largest single component of the refuse stream going into our garbage dumps. We can help reduce this environmental burden by feeding hungry people.
As recycling leftover food becomes an industry standard practice, we will be able to create more jobs to meet the demand for timely pick ups and delivery of usable edibles.
