Safe, easy, and efficient. Give surplus food to local shelters and community organizations
With the Democratic National Convention ahead of us, Food Connect along with other partner nonprofit organizations in Philadelphia have gotten together to provide an easy way for restaurants, catering companies, and venue halls to donate their surplus food
Did you know?
40% of the food in the United States is never eaten
Pound after pound of perfectly edible food is thrown away every day
1 in 6 people in America face hunger. In Philadelphia, nearly 1 in 4 people live in poverty
Donors schedule a pickup
Instead of throwing away surplus food, you can schedule the food to be picked
Food Connect driver arrives
Food is loaded into the car and a receipt of the donation is signed by the donor
Food is donated to a local shelter
The Food Connect driver delivers the food to a matching recipient organization. The shelter receives the donated food and signs a receipt.
Our process is safe, simple, and convenient. Donors can use their donations as a tax write-off!
