Food Rescue Update – October 1, 2015

Through August, Keep Austin Fed has rescued more than 390,000 pounds of surplus food from the waste stream! By average month, this would put us on pace for just under 600,000 pounds rescued by the end of 2015 – but as you can see from the graph below, things have noticeably increased over the past few months and that total could end up being even higher.

That’s why we need YOU to keep supporting our efforts! Whether through donations, volunteering for food runs, or just spreading the word to others, every ounce of support leads to more surplus food being redirected to feed our hungry neighbors in need.

As the holidays approach and our intake starts to pick up even more, don’t forget to select Keep Austin Fed as your charity of choice when shopping Amazon Smile!
