Blanchet House reaffirms its efforts to end food waste by participating in Food Waste Prevention Week.

Blanchet House is proud to announce that we are now a member of the Zero Food Waste Coalition. This coalition of companies, non-profit organizations, cities, and other entities is working to improve the food system at the federal, state, and local levels.

As a member of the coalition, we are participating in Food Waste Prevention Week, April 1-7, and Food Waste Prevention Day, April 24. Greater public participation reaffirms our commitment to supporting systemic change to prevent food waste.

Blanchet House has been at the forefront of the battle to lessen food waste and end hunger. Our organization has been rescuing surplus food from businesses, homes, and grocery stores for decades. It began as a humble way for our small nonprofit soup kitchen to keep food expenses low but has evolved into a mission to make a bigger positive impact on the community and environment.

We are grateful for the support and collaboration of our partners to end food waste and alleviate hunger. Together, we are making a meaningful difference in the lives of individuals and the health of our planet.
