TAKING A STAND
When 1 in 4 children struggle with food insecurity right here in The Valley and over 90% of food waste ends up in landfills, we must take action. Action against food waste and action against the hunger issue that has become daunting for so many families.
Hunger is solvable and Waste Not is delivering on its mission of diverting good food from dumpsters and getting it to those who need it most— but we can’t do it without you. We are 100% funded by the generosity of those who believe in our work.
EMPTY BOWLS—Waste Not’s Signature Event
We are thrilled to announce that our signature event is back! Empty Bowls is an internationally-recognized event to fight hunger in communities around the United States and around the world. The concept is simple: professional ceramic artists create and donate thousands of one-of-a-kind ceramic bowls. Attendees at the event make a $20 minimum donation, choose a bowl, and are served a simple meal. They keep the bowl as a reminder that there are always empty bowls in the Valley and around the globe. Countless communities worldwide have embraced this grassroots project to fight the pervasive problem of hunger and we invite you to join us for this special experience on Saturday, October 27th from 4:00 pm- 7:00 pm at Enchanted Island in Encanto Park. This is a family friendly event and all are welcome.
The Arizona Charitable Tax Credit allows you to get back every dollar you donate to a Qualifying Charitable Organization, such as Waste NOT, through your state income tax filing in an amount up to $400 for single filers and $800 for joint filers. You do not need to itemize your taxes to participate. At Waste Not, a $400 donation (that you will get back as credit) will feed 2,000 people and an $800 donation will feed 4,000 people.
