  1. I just watched a program about your organization and I am so excited to see that someone has came up with this thoughtful and useful idea! I worked in hospitality for over 10 years and I have seen first hand how much food was and is wasted on a daily basis. This organization is very necessary in this country and abroad and I would like to know what I can do to join this cause. I looked on this website but couldn’t find anywhere to fill out an application? I’m located in Knoxville TN and my name is Chonleedonya Odum. My email address is donyaa1225@gmail.com. If anyone can please contact me to let me know what I can do to help this cause, I’m ready and willing! Thank you for your time.

    • Chonleedonya, thank you for your kind words! We will get back to you by email soon to let you know how you can get involved. It’s so inspiring to see your passion for the cause.

      • Thank you very much and let me know whether or not you already hired someone for the job. I would love to help in some kind of way for this cause. I appreciate this, Chonleedonya

  2. Where can we get information about applying?

  3. I saw your story on Upworthy, and I applaud your efforts. The amount of food wasted by the average FAMILY each year is obscene–when you get to restaurants, caterers and college campuses, it’s almost criminal. The worst waste I have ever witnessed, however, is from cruise ships. If you have ever been on a cruise and experienced the “food anytime” culture, epitomized by the obnoxious display of excess at the “midnight buffet,” and wondered “what happens to all of this extra food that can’t possibly be consumed by the number of passengers?”, you will be sickened to learn that it is dumped overboard. I’ve only been on 2 cruises, but each time we came into ports where children were begging or diving for coins tossed by passengers…how is it that these cruise lines would rather throw perfectly good fruit, vegetables, meats–everything you can think of–into the water instead of feeding these kiddos? Likely it’s a liability issue or simply a lack of procedure to donate the food. I would love to see an organization take on that challenge…
