MealConnect is an easy, free and safe way to turn excess food from local donors, such as restaurants and caterers, into hope for our neighbors facing hunger. See how you can make a big difference - even with one pick-up - in our community.

Step 1 - Prepare

Attend orientation, complete the food handler training and check out a volunteer kit.

Step 2 - Match

When a donation is available, you'll receive a text notification with the details. Decide if you're able to accept the delivery and respond through the provided link.

Step 3 - Pick Up & Deliver

Pick up the donation at the designated time and location. Take the temperature of the food and record it on the temperature log. Deliver the donation to the assigned agency and record the temperature.
