People, groups and businesses with food to spare–whether it’s extra canned goods, frozen food they no longer need or fresh items they have too much of—contact Helping Hands to make a donation. Those food items are then collected by volunteers and made available to anyone in need.
Food is rescued daily by Helping Hands volunteers from local food suppliers like grocery stores, bakeries, pharmacies or coffee shops. This food is often bruised or damaged fruit or vegetables that won’t sell at a typical price point, bakery items, prepared deli foods, dairy or other items that are too close to the best before date. We rescue everything and then redirect that food to our two Free Food Sheds.
