Partner With Hollywood Food Coalition’s Exchange

Hollywood Food Coalition is working hard to bring as many recipients into their program as they can, and they’ll continue to grow their partnerships as they increase their food donations. Hollywood Food Coalition started as a kitchen that cooked every meal with donated food. It’s hard to do that. Especially when donations come and go at random. And when they do arrive, the quantities and qualities are varied. If you ask them, there’s a better way. They’re driven to prove it.The Exchange goes to great lengths to learn about your organization, your programs, and the populations you serve. They’ll learn what your capacity constraints are and the types of food your clients love. They’ll do their best to accommodate all of it, collecting feedback as you work together. They think this is pretty exciting, and they hope you do too. Please fill out their initial inquiry form, and they’ll contact you with further information. Together, you’ll change the food rescue and redistribution game. Visit:
