Food Connection collects surplus food from restaurants and caterers in Asheville and delivers the food to those who will enjoy it in order to reduce food waste and ease the pain of immediate hunger. Show More
Restaurants and caterers often prepare food they don’t end up serving to customers. Maybe it’s a tray of pasta that only a few customers ordered or a platter of sandwiches that wasn’t served. Food Connection picks up that food and delivers it to local organizations or agencies that provide meals for those in need in our community. The food donations are coordinated through Dig Local in connection with Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church, Asheville Taxi, and local non-profits.
State and federal laws protect organizations from liability whenever they donate food they believe to be safe. Good faith food donors are not subject to civil and criminal liability should the product later cause harm to its recipient.
