With nearly 40% of all food in the United States wasted, and nearly one in eight Americans not having enough to eat, our aim is to reduce food insecurity as well as food waste in the Hudson Valley. One in 10 people across Dutchess, Orange, Putnam and Ulster counties receives Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits (formerly known as “food stamps”). Through a simple matching process, FeedHV (powered by ChowMatch) will allow food donors, volunteers and nonprofit agencies to divert food from landfills to lunch boxes.
Farmers, restaurants, caterers, businesses and institutions.
Transport, glean and process food from donors.
Nonprofits and other organizations with food assistance programs.
