Food to Share is a community food partnership that provides unique opportunities to address both food insecurity and environmental solutions. This project, inspired by the Fresno State Food Recovery Network model, will increase access and availability of nutritious food to underserved communities in Fresno County. Additionally, the project will make significant contributions to the improvement of regional air quality, by reducing greenhouse gas emissions by encouraging waste diversion from landfills for renewable energy production in collaboration with Colony Energy and Caglia Environmental.
Join us in our efforts to feed the hungry, improve the environment, and generate renewable energy in our agricultural heartland of California!
Food to Share will combat hunger and increase access to healthy food in underserved neighborhoods that are represented by high concentrations of poverty and communities of color.
Food to Share is operated through the organizational and partnership building capacities of Fresno Metro Ministry and community development partner, the Regenerate California Innovation (RCI).
Food to Share provides access to wholesome nutritious foods by collecting edible food from:
- FARMERS MARKET
- FOOD SERVICE FACILITIES
