Our Programs


Food Rescue

Have you ever attended a large banquet at a hotel or watched your favorite team at a sports stadium? If so, you’ve probably seen piles of leftover food and may have wondered what happens to it.

This is where Hunger at Home comes in — through our business partnerships with convention centers, hotels, stadiums and entertainment venues Hunger at Home channels extra food to homeless shelters and meal centers operated by our nonprofit partners.

This translates to tons of delicious, nutritious food getting in the mouths of the thousands of hungry people in Silicon Valley. Hunger and homelessness are ever present challenges faced by many in our community. In 2019, Santa Clara County saw a 31% increase in homelessness over the last two years. This doesn’t even account for thousands of hungry children, seniors and community members who are housed but don’t have money to buy groceries and pay the rent.
