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

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been with Waste Not now for about 10 years. I have held several positions within the organization and have had a wonderful and fullfillng experience doing so. Let me tell you about a recent humbling experience. I was working in the Waste Not booth at the Orange Park, FL annual Fall Festival a few weeks ago. It was a beautiful Fall day and I was having a great time talking to people about Waste Not as they came by the booth. A young lady, in her 20's with a toddler in tow, stopped. She told me that she recognized the name, Waste Not, because she was receiving assistance from one of our recipient groups and knew that much of the food she was getting came from Waste Not. She just wanted to say "thank you". She made my day!

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

Rating: 5 stars  

Waste Not Want Not is made up of an incredible group of volunteers, donating their time and treasure to help Waste Not Want Not and the groups they support, eliminate waste and at the same time, help reduce hunger and poverty in Northeast Florida.
My journey with Waste Not began in 2007 when Waste Not was looking for a Realtor to help find them a new home. In 2008 they moved in to a new location with room to grow, and grow they have. I soon began to volunteer to pick up food from a local store of a large grocery chain. I remember the feeling I had that first time, driving back to Waste Not, my SUV smelling like a bakery, knowing that I was helping them keep food out of the land fill and getting it into the hands of local groups that would be feeding the hungry that same evening. In 2016, these groups will save over $3 million by not have to go out and purchase the food that is provided to them by Waste Not. $3 million that they can use for other needs of their mission.
I am very proud to be associated with Waste Not Want Not and to be a part of what they have accomplished in the past 27 years.
