From the moment I had contact with this organization, I was impressed beyond words. What they do, what they are able to accomplish and how many lives they affect on a daily basis is nothing short of phenomenal. If there was such a group in every county of every state, imagine the food that could be rescued and the impact on hunger it would have.
Thank you Waste Not Want Not for the diligence you show every day and the compassion and care you exemplify in feeding the hungry. You are a role model for all of us and an example of how we can all do more and do better.
Keep up the great work.

Thank you, Malea! It is a pleasure working with you and others from Pie in the Sky. I also admire your work creating Farm to Family which brings farm fresh produce to food desserts in St. Johns County. When will you be replicating that in Clay and Duval?
