- Green/Sustainable Practices:
Waste Not is an organization with a simple strategy that significantly impacts the quality of life for hundreds of men, women and children through the Phoenix area. Thousands of pounds of wholesome nourishing food is thrown away daily. We are unique in that we collect excess prepared perishable food from restaurants, resorts and caterers. We also collect food from grocers and other various food purveyors. On average we collect 5,000 pounds of food per day. The food is collected in the morning and delivered the same afternoon, six-days-per-week to approximately 90 agency partners that feed the hungry; including various shelters, transition homes, rehabilitation centers, schools, day care centers, after school programs and senior citizen facilities.
