Giving back and supporting the development of the Jackson Hole community is an important part of what we do. For 2017, a portion of the Jackson Hole Food & Wine proceeds will benefit the Culinary and Hospitality Program at Central Wyoming College and also Hole Food Rescue, both dedicated to fostering awareness and innovation in the Jackson Hole culinary community. We are honored to be able to support these wonderful organizations and hope you will too!
Hole Food Rescue distributes excess food from grocery stores, bakeries, farms, and several local businesses to organizations serving the at-risk, in-need residents of Teton County, WY. Ultimately reducing the amount of edible food sent to Bonneville County Landfill - 101 miles away! - while creating more food security in our community.
Participating food retailers set aside unsellable, yet edible, food products in designated areas for HFR volunteers to pick-up
These food donations are collected by HFR volunteers on a daily basis and brought to the HFR Headquarters where they are sorted and organized for tailored donations. Weather permitting, you may find HFR volunteers biking food deliveries around town with a HFR bike trailer.
Hole Food Rescue's mission is to reduce food waste and food insecurity in our community.
At Hole Food Rescue, we live by our five core values:
1. We show up
2. We have fun
3. We value our relationships
4. We hold ourselves to high standards
5. We go the extra mile
With the help of 85+ volunteers, Hole Food Rescue diverts 5,000 pounds of nutritious food on average to around a 1,000 in-need residents every week!
