Our Beliefs

Mission and vision rest on conviction.


We believe:

  • that we can reduce hunger
  • that the tremendous costs of senior hunger far exceed the price of addressing it
  • that it is our responsibility to lead change
  • that the issue of senior hunger does not get the attention it deserves and that as a result too many seniors face the indignity that is hunger
  • that some things are too valuable to waste – like the health and well-being of our seniors and the nutritious food on which both of those depend
  • that there is a role for everyone in helping us reach that goal
  • that our country produces enough food to provide proper nutrition for everyone, everyday
  • that wasted food means wasted money, wasted nutrients…and wasted opportunity and that by reducing food waste we can help reduce senior hunger
  • that “willful waste makes woeful want” is as true today as it was when it was first spoken in 1576
  • that by taking the time and providing the educational resources necessary to equip those whose responsibility it is to provide proper care and nourishment to seniors is a core principle of our work
