Impact of donations
2017: 24,761 pounds of food rescued = 20,634 meals = $41,350 of food
2018: 75,000 pounds of food rescued = 62,500 meals = $125,250 of food
NOTE: While these are the standard formulas used for food rescue, this does not reflect the greater NUTRITIONAL IMPACT of Ruth's Gleanings through our focus on fresh fruits, vegetables and nutritionally dense foods.
2019: In our first year of FoodShare, we distributed 2590 boxes of fresh produce to families, totaling over 46,000 pounds of fruits and vegetables. Over half of these went to SNAP participants. We purchased $31,702 worth of produce for our boxes with 50% of this being purchased from our local and regional farmers. This is truly a boost to our local food system, benefiting our small farmers as well as at-risk populations who experience great health disparities.
2020: Within the first five months of 2020, we exceeded our 2019 totals. With the food system interruptions this year, we saw our distribution grow four-fold from February to May. Thank you for supporting our efforts so we can help more families.
Please donate to help us make even more of an impact in our community's health in 2020!!!
