The Official Pantry Project aims to help the homeless by collecting excess food from restaurants, cafés, and bakeries, and distributing them to the needy at no cost. We are a team of high school students who want to help create a future without food waste.
VP of Operations
As of 2010, 133 billion pounds of food were wasted by restaurants, stores and homes. Restaurants alone throw out 10% of the food they buy. In addition, 550,000+ people in the United States are homeless. 50% of these people are over the age of 50 and, therefore, may find it hard to work and earn money. The majority of the homeless also have no consistent meal plan and only eat when they are able to make money from panhandling or from very low-paying jobs. By partnering with us today, you can create a world of difference for these men and women.
Partnering with various cafés and restaurants
We are currently looking to partner with restaurants, bakeries, and cafés in the Los Altos and Cupertino downtown areas.
