Since 1992, Food Donation Connection (FDC) has assisted food service companies with the development and implementation of Harvest Programs designed to provide an alternative to discarding surplus food. FDC administers these programs, linking donor locations with food rescue groups or those feeding the needy.
Family Promise Affiliates will make use of the partnership to:
• Augment congregation dinners,
• Provide meals for graduates and other families beyond the core program,
• Provide meals for evening events and classes,
• Share food with their local nonprofit partners.
All Affiliates locations have been entered into FDC’s database and are alerted when food becomes available in their area. Fort Bend Family Promise Executive Director Vera Johnson in Fort Bend (TX) praised the program, “This is the number one cost-free mechanism for bringing graduate families back. The quality is excellent.”
FDC currently works with Pizza Hut, KFC, Taco Bell, NPC International, Olive Garden, Red Lobster, LongHorn Steakhouse, The Capital Grille, Bahama Breeze, Seasons 52, The Cheesecake Factory, Grand Lux Café, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Famous Dave’s, Auntie Anne’s, Cracker Barrel, Chick-fil-A, Einstein Bros Bagels, Wawa, Outback Steakhouse, Bonefish Grill, and Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse.
