How It Makes A Difference

Food For Free™s Heat-N-Eats Program uses rescued food from university and corporate dining halls and repackages it into balanced, healthy meals, each comprised of protein, starch, and vegetables. The very same mixed vegetables, brown rice, salmon, lasagna, or chicken that would have gone to compost are instead flash frozen, split up, and sealed into microwaveable meal trays. If not rescued by Food For Free, this fresh, wholesome food, bringing much-needed nutrition to those in need, would end up in landfills.
