Review for Waste Not Want Not Inc, Orange Park, FL, USA
We can only agree wholeheartedly with all the positive comments about this wide-reaching organization. We have been aware of Waste Not Want Not's huge positive impact on our communities for over 15 years. We first became aware of this local non-profit and their imposing volunteer force when our church's outreach program needed food to feed the homeless in our county. Waste Not Want Not was the first to offer food on an ongoing basis. Years later we began volunteering for them and learned how they rescue food from a wide variety of donors. We saw our neighbors and friends benefiting from the combined efforts of our fellow volunteers. We saw charity after charity identify their needs in order to help their own communities and we realized we were part of an organization providing foods for hundreds! Over the years we watched with pride, as Waste Not Want Not rescued more and more food items, preventing waste, protecting our environment, and most important , providing food to those most hungry. They provide for hungry children, families and seniors across ten counties in North Florida. Their volunteers are by far some of the most dedicated people we know. The countless benefits of being part of such a group are multiplied tenfold when you realize you are a small part of an organization that affects 10's of thousands of lives each week and makes them better! Now that is GREAT!
