Distressed Product

Each year, billions of pounds of safe food and grocery products are pulled off grocery store shelves and removed from circulation. Without intervention, these items would be thrown away and wasted. But with 49 million Americans struggling with hunger in this country, there is an opportunity to recover this healthy and safe food for consumption.  

With the help of our partners, Feeding America can put these products in the hands of those who need them.
