It’s kind of mind-boggling what all of you accomplished this year. Now that we’re tallying up this year’s food rescue effort, it adds up to more than 5 million meals rescued and delivered to people who need access to fresh food in the US. 5 MILLION MEALS! And I’m saying you did this because if you rescued, donated, or distributed food through Community Plates this year, you made it happen. Those of you who were able to support us financially also played an invaluable part in this 2016 success. So to all of the individual “you’s”…thank you for your passion, compassion and generosity.
In 2017 our vision is to be everywhere you are. To some degree, we always have been but stay tuned for some news early in the new year that will make it clear where we are going together (spoiler alert: it’s everywhere.)
On behalf of everyone at Community Plates, our best wishes for the Warmest and Happiest Holiday Season.
Food For All,
Co-founder/Executive Director, Community Plates
