Review for Waste Not Want Not Inc, Orange Park, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My respect for this charity continues to increase over the years. As more food sources (grocery stores and restaurants) recognize how dependable this group is, day in day out, almost every day of the year, the amount of food rescued and redistributed to those in need grows. I am forever amazed at how much food we save from the landfill and how many people benefit from it. As someone who worked for large corporations that bullied me into donating to nonprofits with massive payrolls, I vastly prefer to donate my time and money to a charity where every dollar really does get used toward a better community.

Review for Waste Not Want Not Inc, Orange Park, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Volunteering and donating to charity are both important parts of my life as a community member and I want every hour and dollar donated to count. With Waste Not Want Not, the return on my investment is incredible. I'm forever impressed by how much food we keep from the landfills and get into the mouths of people who would otherwise be hungry (needlessly). Beyond the great accomplishments WNWN achieves in rescuing food, I'm also impressed by how easy it is for kids to get involved; they contribute labor, but also learn valuable lessons about people outside their daily lives and the benefits of volunteering.

Review for Waste Not Want Not Inc, Orange Park, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The amount of food and other supplies that would otherwise go to the landfill without this organization is staggering (millions of pounds a year), especially given how many people in the community are in need of assistance. Every day of the week, rain or shine, WNWN volunteers collect from various distributors, grocery chains and restaurants. The pickups are returned to the main facility, sorted by type, etc and then re-distributed to that day's recipient organizations (from throughout North Florida). I am proud to be a volunteer for WNWN and I have never volunteered for a more economically efficient charity.
