Food Circle

The mission of Food Circle is to safely collect excess prepared and perishable food from restaurants, caterers, delis, and other food service operations. Once recovered, this food is distributed through our store, to people in need and to non-profit agencies that serve children, families, the homeless, and senior citizens.
Prepared food is accepted from commercial food establishments only. Using sanitized containers, excess prepared food is collected at donor establishments by a driver trained in safe food handling. Donated food is briefly stored in our walk-in cooler until it is repacked into single serving meals. Meals are labeled and dated and immediately frozen for distribution.
