Food Recovery Opportunities: 7 days a week
Nourish Now works to solve two major social issues Simultaneously: Food waste & hunger. Located in Rockville, Nourish Now is Montgomery County’s leader in prepared food recovery since 2011. Over two million pounds of food has been recovered & donated.
We partner with over 160 restaurants, caterers, supermarkets, & other licensed food donors throughout the area, seven days a week.
Food is donated through our four main programs.
Family Distribution: 40 families receive a five-day supply of food Mon-Fri at our Rockville headquarters.
Nourish Neighborhoods: Our newest program, enhances our Family Distribution to include satellite/hubs in Montgomery County. We deliver monthly to 40-50 families that are considered to be at the highest risk of food insecurity. Each household donation includes three high quality dinners, combined with an array of typical household food staples. Satellite/hubs include barriers to food insecurity such as: Food deserts, lack of transportation, and more.
Thank you to our 2019 Title Restaurant Sponsor Mamma Lucia’s, who plays a major role in each monthly donation of dinners & to all our restaurant supporters.
Organization Distribution: Eldery care, underserved youth, food pantries, shelters & more local non-profit organization’s are donated requested food items to support their food distributions. Over $250,000 was saved for our Partner Organizations in 2018 through their reducfood purchase
MCPS S.N.A.C.K: 1,400 students receive healthy snacks for gaps in-between meals in-school & for after-school programs to combat hunger weekly.
