Home / Programs / Food Rescue

There is a tremendous amount of food waste in the US and Globally.  It is a hallmark of F4’s campaign to be judicious and strategic with our resources maximizing our ability to serve additional individuals in need.

F4’s Facilitation Service

F4 serves as an unpaid broker connecting the source of excess food to non-profit recipient agencies in need (homeless shelters/feeding centers).  We work with a variety of entities that are interested in participating in food re-purposing on a daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, or sporadic basis.
