OUR
MISSION

The mission of Veggie Rescue is to improve the nutrition and quality of life of our community members who are struggling with food insecurity by providing them healthy, local produce, and to work with farmers to reduce food waste at the beginning of the food cycle.  We carry out our mission by rescuing excess fruits and vegetables from Santa Barbara County farms, farmers markets and backyards and distributing this fresh produce directly to local schools and other nonprofits serving those in need, at no cost to recipient organizations.
