NOURISH is a food rescue program working in partnership with the Salvation Army to divert food from local grocery stores to people in our community that need it! Today we need you! We need someone that is a team player, enjoys sharing the love of food, and wants to make a difference in the world around them.

A typical day in the NOURISH kitchen starts with sorting and preparing food donations. All of the food that comes to our kitchen comes with the best of intentions but not all of it is good to feed people, that food gets sorted for the pigs! Of the food that’s good for people, a lot of it gets distributed fresh to food bank clients, while others gets processed into frozen meals or canned goods.
