40% of food is wasted in this country. Californians throw out over 11 billion pounds of food waste every year, and Napa ranks 45th for food insecurity out of California’s 58 counties! Check out SaveTheFood.com for great food waste reduction tips. You can also help fight this waste and lend a helping hand by donating food.
The following local organizations accept both prepared and canned food. Please no outdated canned goods, open containers, homemade or perishable foods for drop-off locations…food that cannot be donated should be emptied into the compost cart. You must call ahead to make arrangements for prepared and/or perishable food donations.
