There is a fundamental absurdity in our food system: 35% of the food we produce in the U.S. is thrown away, yet an estimated 42 million Americans struggle with hunger. We are leading the charge to change this broken system. Support our initiative, your Donations HELP!
Our Food Rescue To Go! Program: in partnership with Door Dash allows us to deliver our rescued food supplies to families facing food insecurity within a 10 Mile radius of our Baltimore City warehouse or our Philadelphia PA distribution site. This program is Completely FREE for individuals or families facing food insecurity. At 4MyCiTy our focus is on healthy foods, so most of what's delivered are Fruits & Vegetables with random grocery and snack items sprinkled in occasionally. This programs allows us to reduce food waste, address hunger within the communities and create a consistent stream of supplemental income for the local community through pay as a Delivery Dasher.
We have partnered with Door Dash and will be offering Free food waste pick up to residents within a 10 Mile radius of our Baltimore City warehouse. Residents participating in this program must use our 4MyCiTy 100% compostable/biodegradable zip lock bags. When a total of 5 bags or more are accumulated they can contact us and we will send a driver over to pick up the bags up at their homes with no costs associated. All collected food waste will be processed in our On-site composter and the finished soil amendment will be available for city residents to pickup for personal or community gardening use if needed. Our goal is to make composting FREE and accessible to everyone.
