Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We feed those that are hungry by recovering excess fresh food. Even though most think of Napa Valley as abundant and prosperous, 18.6% Napa County children live in food insecure households. Food insecurity has serious impacts on an individual's well-being, which may result in poor school attendance and performance, lowered workplace productivity, and physical and mental health problems. Looking at it another way, the majority of Napa County earns $20/hour or less, which is described as lower income. A notable 48% of lower income adults indicated that they were food insecure. That is a large problem that we can’t ignore. Where there is abundance of food, we gather the food and deliver it to organizations that feed the hungry. We strive to end hunger, food insecurity, and food waste in Napa County.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Goal 1. Implement a prepared food recovery system to ensure sustainability and efficiency, matching donations with the needs of our communities.

Goal 2. Work collaboratively to reduce and hopefully eliminate food insecurity while reducing waste.

We have recovered food safely from events, the community at large, Napa Farmers’ Market, wineries, and many other organizations and transported it to organizations serving the vulnerable, including: NEWS (domestic violence and sexual abuse victims), The Table, Napa Valley Food Bank, Napa Valley Unified School District Free Summer Meal Programs for Children, Substance Abuse Residential Rehab Facility, an Emergency Family Shelter, a Medical Respite, and many others.
