Food Rescue US Hosts Annual Food for All Event on April 24, 6:30PM Benefit to End Food Insecurity and Food Waste

March 11, 2019 Norwalk, CT: Food Rescue US,  the direct-transfer food rescue organization dedicated to ending food insecurity and food waste in America, announced their annual signature fundraising event, Food for All, will take place on April 24th at the Loading Dock in Stamford, CT.  The event highlights the organization’s important work delivering more than 7 million meals a year to the food insecure and keeping more than 8 million pounds of food waste out of landfills.

Food for All has become one of Fairfield County’s most popular strolling, tasting events and this year features many fan favorites from past years and some of the hottest, new restaurants on the local dining scene. General Admission tickets are $150.   Click here for tickets:   foodrescue.us/foodforall

Food Rescue US is grateful for the generous sponsors of this year’s event: Northern Trust, Britton and Laurie Jones, Janice and Jim Bottiglieri, Elizabeth and Joseph Massoud Family Foundation, Alan & Fran Offenberg, Robert & Clare Kretzman, Jim Kirsch;  MAV Foundation, CTbites and media sponsor Serendipity.   We are also grateful for the restaurants and beverage companies that have donated their superb food and drinks for the event.

The Food Rescue US CEO Carol Shattuck said, “Now in its 9th year, Food for All is a highly anticipated event that features excellent food presented by top local restaurants and fun beverages.  But most importantly, together we are helping fund our important work to end hunger and food waste in Fairfield County and around the country.    Each year, thousands of volunteer food rescuers rescue food from food donors that would otherwise be wasted and deliver it to agencies that feed the food insecure.    We now operate in 20 locations in 12 states and the District of Columbia.   Any food left over from Food for All will be rescued and delivered that night to local agencies that feed the hungry.”
