Every day, we provide a bridge between the abundance of healthy food Central Texas has to offer and our neighbors who don’t know where their next meal will come from. These days, we need to add more lanes to that bridge to keep up with the needs of those folks who struggle to put food on the table. Thanks to a grant from the Walmart Foundation, we now have a new refrigerated truck to help us rescue an estimated 2 million more pounds of surplus food each year, keeping it out of landfills and in the hands of those who need it.

Last year, we rescued 16 million pounds of food from going into the landfill, our highest yearly total to date. Still, we’re falling short of meeting the need for our neighbors.

Truck by truck, donation by donation, we’ll get there. With partners like Walmart by our side, we’ll be saying “yes, please” a whole lot more, and our planet will say “ahh, thank you.”
