Everyone in America should have access to healthy food.
OneGenAway is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that seeks to eliminate food insecurity by bringing healthy food to people in need.
Individuals and families experience food insecurity when they do not have access to enough food to live a healthy lifestyle, largely due to economic constraints. In America, 1 in 10 households experience food insecurity. At the same time, 30% to 40% of America’s food supply goes to waste.
OneGenAway seeks to rescue high-quality food from grocery stores, restaurants, caterers, and farms before it goes to waste. That food is then given to our neighbors in need.
OneGenAway accomplishes this by partnering with local agencies to bring food to places of need and by operating a mobile food pantry every Saturday with the help of volunteers. At these food distributions, anyone can come and receive food, no questions asked.
