How We Impact the Community
Feeding it Forward focuses on solving food insecurity and food waste in Napa County by recovering excess perishable and prepared food from "food generators", such as restaurants, food markets, grocery stores, and events. After volunteers and staff pick up the food, it is safely transported (stored, if needed) and then distributed to other organizations that focus on actively feeding Napa County residents. We pride ourselves in not duplicating the efforts of other non-profits, instead supporting them.
Some clients who benefit from our recovery actions are affordable housing residents, farm workers, homeless shelters, and the working low income. In Napa County, 1 in 5 children and 1 in 10 adults experience chronic hunger.
In 2021, we recovered and provided 146,000+ meals, reducing the carbon footprint to an equivalent of 13 passenger vehicles for 1 year and the water footprint by 3.74 million gallons of water saved.
