We are excited to bring on staff to support our efforts to gather and consolidate resources, build curriculum on food procurement best practices, facilitate resource-sharing meetings, support the on-the-ground work of individual members, and conduct outreach to new food rescues across the US.
We believe that sharing resources, logistics software, values, and a vision will make us stronger and better able to advocate for a more just food system across the entire country, utilizing our collective voice to build power, share power, and make changes from the root of things.
