Our aim is to capture and distribute food that would otherwise be thrown away.
Food Rescue Nantucket is an enterprise of the Unitarian Meeting House Congregation working with the Nantucket Food Pantry & Sustainable Nantucket to reduce food insecurity and food waste in our community.
We collect food from growers, retailers, and restaurants and distribute to the food pantry network, the Nantucket schools, and other recipients identified by Food Rescue Nantucket.
We have food bins located at each end of the island and in-town for the collection of unopened and non-perishable food from renters and others leaving the island.
We promote composting as a cultural norm for individuals, commercial kitchens and food retailers.
For more information and/or to volunteer please call Gary at 508-221-8282 and like them on facebook.
