Upcoming guest chefs include Daniel Boulud (Boulud Sud), Tim and Nancy Cushman (Covina), and Janine Booth (Root & Bone).

The Nonprofit Turning Food Scraps Into Meals for the Hungry

Another challenge is to find ways to effectively work with other organizations within the redistribution space. For example, ReThink is careful to divide their planned pick-up map with similarly focused non-profits like Rescuing Leftover Cuisine, which recruits volunteers to transport excess food to shelters nearby. There’s also a good chance they’ll end up making use of food from other New York hunger organizations like the Food Bank and City Harvest.
