Industrial Food Donation

Did you know that GVFB recovers safe, quality food from businesses such as farms, food wholesalers, grocers, restaurants, hotels and commercial kitchens which we in turn distribute to individuals and agencies?

Industrial Donations

We accept quality food from businesses that have excess product, or have product that is safe yet cannot be sold. This food is then shared both directly with our members and through our partner agencies.

This process of preventing safe, quality food from going into the waste stream, is called food recovery.
