Teens Create Non-Profit Foundation

  • Donate Don't Dump is a teen run organization determined to change the paradigm of commercial food waste in the U.S. and draw attention to the issue of hunger.  After discovering active military families, seniors, and children at charity food distributions a 12 year old was inspired to design this new logo, and with the help of two other teens working on a hunger documentary, they created Donate Don't Dump.  Their mission is to rescue short dated/surplus food, educate, advocate, and get draw public attention to the negative impact rotting food has on the environment. We empower and create opportunities for young people to get involved, engaged, and make a real difference! 
    20 Chapters and over 4,000 members/partners strong.
