In Montgomery County, an estimated 83,000 people struggle to get enough food to eat. Yet more than 50 million pounds of food are wasted in the county each year. To some, this is a tragedy; to Nourish Now, it is an opportunity. Rescuing unused, fresh food from over 100 licensed food providers restaurants, caterers, distributors Nourish Now donates it directly to people in need and to more than 50 food assistance organizations. Every month, 500 families receive prepared meals, produce, bread, and dairy products, along with supplemental canned goods that have been donated by local food drives. Clients can also sit down with a Food Security Advisor, who helps make sure they have enough to eat for the whole month. For nonprofit partners, the benefits are two-fold: they save money because foods are provided free of charge, and their clients receive fresh goods generally much healthier than processed foods. The bonus for everyone? Instead of packing our landfills, this good food nourishes our neighbors. Its a winning partnership all around
that you can join.
