Why we do this -
Every year millions of tons of usable food is being thrown into our landfills. Why do we care? In Snohomish county, over 10% of the population is considered food-insecure. What does this mean? This means that families are having to choose between paying bills or buying food; It means kids are going hungry; It means seniors don't have enough money to buy food and prescriptions.
Evergreen Food & Goods Rescue works hard to help solve both of these problems. We resuce unmarketable, but usable, food and goods from local donors that would otherwise be headed to the landfill. We accomplish this through daily pick ups of produce, dairy, meat, bread, frozen foods, canned foods and a variety of non-food items. We then re-distribute these items to those in need.
