Second Chance Foods, Inc.
We are a 501 (c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to rescuing unsold, un-served, and aesthetically imperfect food and distributing it in an effort to reduce food waste and food insecurity. We collect food from farms, grocery stores, restaurants and other purveyors in the Hudson Valley Region and distribute it directly to community outreach organizations that provide meals to people who need food the most. We also provide programs to raise awareness about food waste, nutrition, and sustainability on a local and global level.
Along with all the resources that were involved in the creation of that food, the water, the gasoline, the electricity - wasted. In the landfills methane gas is generated from all the rotting food. In fact it's the largest source of methane in the US. At the same time, 48.8 million Americans live in food-insecure households, which includes more than 15 million children.
