Q: If you don’t give food directly to people who need it, exactly what is your purpose?

A: We’re the “hub in the wheel,” surrounded by—and linked to—hundreds of local agencies. We save them the huge cost and effort of seeking surplus food and shipping it safely. We save donors the trouble of answering hundreds of far-flung requests. They know we’ll pick up the food and handle it safely, which protects them from liability.
