We know you care about the work Saving Grace is doing to reduce food waste and feed our hungry neighbors with healthy excess perishable food. You can make a bigger impact if you share this email and invite your friends to
learn about our work.
Saving Grace is on the forefront of a community effort to make sure kids, families and seniors have access to nutritious food on a regular basis - and especially during these uncertain times. As coronavirus closings lead to mounting job losses and/or pay cuts and students are out of school, the need for food is greater than ever. At the same time, we are hearing more nationally about how perfectly good food is going to waste. For more than six years, Saving Grace has been working diligently to combat this issue in our community, and we continue to look for new ways to do this.
In addition to handling their regular routes, our drivers have picked up food from restaurants, event venues, casinos, bars and other food vendors as their kitchens closed during the past few weeks. Nearly 65 of these pickups have resulted in over 41,000 pounds of extra food provided to our nonprofit partners to feed their clients.

At the same time, many of our nonprofit partner agencies are seeing an increased need for food. Our operations team is doing its best to provide
as much food as it can at a time when our regularly scheduled pickups are fluctuating with the food supply chain.
Our team remains flexible to respond to changing needs of our community as we provide the professional distribution and logistics service that connects surplus food with agencies that feed the hungry. We anticipate this increased need for food will continue in the foreseeable future, and we know there is more food that can be rescued to feed the hungry.
