FeedHV is a regional food rescue and gleaning network dedicated to meeting the needs of neighbors while mitigating the impacts of food waste. The concept evolved out of community dialogues with farmers, volunteers, nonprofit agencies and key stakeholders. Through our web-based and mobile application powered by ChowMatch, FeedHV links food donors of prepared but unserved food and fresh produce (including farms, restaurants, catering services, grocery stores, hospitals, universities and more) to nonprofit organizations with food assistance programs (such as food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters) through the efforts of a network of volunteers who transport, glean and process donated food. With this technological solution, FeedHV enhances and streamlines the good work of businesses, agencies, and organizations already doing food recovery work. The network covers Ulster, Orange, Dutchess, Sullivan, Greene, Columbia and Putnam counties in the Hudson Valley.
FeedHV is funded by Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley with support from Local Economies Project, NoVo Foundation, Ralph E. Ogden Foundation, Louis Greenspan Charitable Trust, The Thompson Family Foundation, The Bruderhof and anonymous individual and families.
