Our chef-based model utilizes our volunteer network to rescue perishables from farms, grocers, and wholesalers. Our highly talented Transform team of chefs and volunteers transform this food into healthy soupes and meals. Our soupes and meals are distributed to roughly 170 share partners that feed the food insecure. We aim to bridge the gap between food waste and food insecurity in the Greater Cincinnati region.
If you have under 50lbs of food to donate you can arrive at our loading dock 918 Curtis Street, Monday - Friday, between 8:00am and 3:00pm for donation. If you have over 50lbs to share you may contact us to arrange pick up.
ProducePedia is a free resource that covers the types of fresh produce that can be delivered to food pantries. Each entry includes information on color, taste, and possible uses. People unfamiliar with the vegetable or fruit will learn how to use it, and those who are familiar with it still might learn a fun fact or two!
The Cooperative Extension sites have a wealth of information for any backyard gardener. Once you go to the site (each one if very different from the others) look for a link for “homes and gardens”, “landscape”, “consumer horticulture”, etc. to find information on improving your backyard garden. Neighboring state sites may offer information your own state’s site lacks.
