Rescue Good Food from Becoming Waste

 

Rescue Good Food from Becoming Waste

This project has been modified to support social distancing and best hygiene practices. Rescue food before it's tossed in the trash. Transport your treasures from a Union Square bakery to a local shelter. You'll need to be on your feet or walking for 1 hour, carrying 10 to 20 lbs. of rescued food.
