Founded by Julie D'Agostino in 2016

"I’d just moved to Boise, Idaho, and wanted to resume volunteering for a food recovery operation. I looked around and couldn’t find any organizations that rescued smaller quantities of fresh produce or freshly-made food. Because I had already volunteered to do this work, I knew its effectiveness, and I was utterly compelled to begin. I dug in and talked with both potential food donors and food recipient organizations to understand the pain points of donation and frustrations for each side. Once I understood that there is a need for recovered food in my area (and there IS in any community), I started as a proof of concept. We piloted it in Nov. 2016."
