If there’s one word that describes our community’s response to food insecurity last year during the pandemic, it is “inspiring.” Saving Grace was privileged to be part of the many conversations and partnerships addressing the increased need for food.
In 2020, our work led to 1,347,981 meals being fed to children, seniors, veterans and families. This represents a 25% increase over the amount of food rescued in 2019.
- The value of the food Saving Grace rescued and redistributed in 2020 was $2.3 million.
- The amount rescued and redistributed amounts to 673 tons of food that was kept out of our landfills. This is the equivalent to removing the annual emissions of 591 passenger vehicles from the environment.
- Saving Grace’s drivers/food ambassadors partnered with other organizations to deliver 28,174 Farmers to Families Food Boxes.
