What We Do

Feeding Charlotte collects fresh, unserved, surplus meals from restaurants, caterers and institutions and delivers the meals to local nonprofits who feed the hungry in order to reduce food waste and ease hunger.


The COVID-19 pandemic has closed Feeding Charlotte's largest institutional food donors. As a result, we have expanded our mission to also support the broader restaurant industry. We have developed partnerships with struggling caterers and restaurants to directly distribute their food to those in need.

What Can You Do? Our greatest needs are " to go containers (shop on our Amazon list below)" and monetary donations. Our recipients who used to feeding the hungry and homeless at their churches are now only distributing meals to go.

Interesting Info
