Every day millions of dollars' worth of food goes to waste, while thousands go hungry in the Phoenix area. Waste Not delivers the innovative solution to fighting hunger for those in need and combating waste in the environment

We envision a community where wasted food is a thing of the past and no request for food goes unanswered
Join us in helping Drive Hunger Out of Our Valley!

What Makes Us Stand Out

Not only do we feed hungry children, youth, and adults, we help save millions of pounds of food from being put into local landfills

We are efficient and effective with the community's funds (95% goes to our one and only program fund)

Since 2016, Charity Navigator has issued a 4-star rating to Waste Not. This is the highest possible rating and indicates that our organization adheres to sector best practices.

We don’t charge any fees whatsoever. All of our food and services are provided to the community at no charge. All the more reason that we need your help.

There are a number of beneficial ways to support our work of feeding hungry people

Give Monthly

Become a RIDE ALONG member

We know that our supporters care about our environment and food insecure families and individuals, and with predictable revenue from supporters like you, the Waste Not team can spend more time developing innovative initiatives that move the needle on hunger in our community.


Why Should YOU Become a Ride Along Member?

1. It fuels our (literal) tanks.
Monthly donors ensure that we are always able to rescue good food and deliver it to those who need it most.

2. It provides predictable revenue.
Monthly giving helps Waste Not avoid peaks and valleys of revenue, ensuring we can spend more time on strategic planning, training, and operation logistics, and less on fundraising.

3. Simply put, it sustains our work.
Our Ride Along members support the day-to-day work of Waste Not and demonstrate an ongoing commitment to our mission.


As a bonus, our longtime supporter, TriDave, is offering a matching gift up to $20,000 this summer- double your monthly impact! Please consider making a gift to feed the children, youth, and families we feed this summer.

Every dollar enables us to provide FIVE meals and your $18 commitment will feed a child on summer break for one month while $36 feeds a mother and her child every month.

Arizona Charitable Tax Credit

Your annual gift qualifies as a Charitable Tax Credit donation which means up to $400 or $800 of it is a dollar-for-dollar reduction in state taxes. When you make a donation to Waste Not, it doesn't cost you a dime. That's right, you can get it all back in the form of an Arizona state liability tax credit. Any donation made up until April 15, 2019 can qualify for a 2018 credit.

Legacy Gift

Make a Legacy Gift to Waste Not helps ensure that the ability to rescue fresh food and deliver it to hungry people will continue on into the future:

* You can list Waste Not as a beneficiary in your will or trust
* You can include Waste Not as a beneficiary in your 401k or IRA as well as in an Insurance Policy
