Nourish Now's dedicated volunteers gleaning produce!
Nourish Now recovers over 8,000 lbs. of food every week!

Montgomery County's leader in food recovery since 2011

Nourish Now's mission is to solve two major social issues simultaneously: food waste and hunger. Fresh food is recovered from restaurants, caterers, farms and other licensed food providers throughout the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. Food is then donated directly to families in need and partner organizations to help support their food distribution efforts.

Nourish Now has developed and refined three main programs: the Food Rescue Program, Family Food Distribution Program, and Organization Distribution Program. These programs support each other through the food collection process; from first identifying viable food partners, to working directly with residents that are facing food insecurity, and also teaming with local organizations that benefit from Nourish Now’s food services. Our new Food With Dignity pilot subprogram will further assist families in breaking out of the cycle of food insecurity by helping them create and implement customized plans to better utilize the resources they have, and provide referrals to organizations that can offer other essential services.
