In 2018, Village Food Rescue donated over 1,000,000 Pounds of food to local food pantries
In our country, approximately 72 billion pounds of perfectly good food ends up in landfills and incinerators every year. Rescuing this perfectly edible, whole food means feeding families facing hunger and taking a large step in protecting our planet and conserving our resources.
Donations help local food banks address critical needs for fresh and healthy foods while reducing the amount of food waste at store level.
Village Super Market donates over 1,000,000 pounds of food each year through the food rescue program to community food pantry partners. Look for our in-store community boards to see how many pounds of food your store donates each month.
