In the United States, 31% of available food supply is wasted while close to 1 in 8 American households do not know where their next meal will come from. Over 1 million Tennesseans are food insecure with about 30,000 of those residing in Montgomery County. 

Food Recovery: Recovering unused, quality food from local establishments such as farmers markets and grovery stores, as well as collecting individual donations. The federal Good Samaritan Act for Food Donations protects schools and food donors.

Cooking & Food Service: Using kitchen space at APSU and Clarksville Salvation Army, students repurpose food donations and prepare balanced meals for those in need.

Empowerment & Education: Our volunteers work together to empower others with skills and knowledge they need to make healthier living and eating choices.
