Good food is being saved and used by those who need it.
Area volunteers have transported 100,000 pounds of items through the Prince William Food Rescue program, according to a release from Action in Community Through Service (ACTS).
ACTS, a non-profit based out of Dumfries, launched it in August.
Using the Prince William Food Rescue app, community members may volunteer to pick up donations from restaurants or grocery stores and bring it to various sites, such as schools.
“We’re amazed by the support that our community has given to the Food Rescue program,” ACTS Director of Development Aaron Tolson said in a release. “The Prince William region is full of people that tirelessly help the community, and they’ve really helped make this program their own.”
Updates about the program and details about downloading the app can be found on the program’s Facebook page.
