Friendship Donations Network rescues fresh, nutritious food that would otherwise be thrown away from stores and farms and redistributes it to neighbors in need. We provide food donations to hunger relief programs that serve more than 2000 people a week, and divert over 1,000 lbs. of good food from local landfill every day. A model of efficiency, founded in 1988 by Sara Pines, we are almost entirely volunteer-run.
