MISSION

To solve 2 major social issues simultaneously:
food waste & hunger

Nourish Now is a 501c3 nonprofit food bank, specialized in food recovery and providing donations from grocers, caterers, restaurants, bakeries, and other food donors for the benefit of children, families, and the elderly, as well as shelters, food pantries, and other organizations working to end hunger. Through our programs, viable food partners are identified, and donations of food are recovered and redistributed through our network. Nourish Now operates under the following key philosophies.

Food With Dignity:

Providing respectful assistance to create and maintain lasting food security with an ultimate goal to break the cycle of poverty.

Giving Surplus Value:

Turning multiple problems into a single solution for the environmental, financial, and philanthropic benefit of our neighbors in the community.
In an effort to end hunger through food recovery, donations are collected throughout Montgomery County, MD and the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, and distributed directly to individuals, families and partner organizations.
