Giving in 2021
In 2021, we have partnered with Fight2Feed, becoming their Lake County hub for rescue food. Through these joint efforts, we are able to continue to reach our community in need. BellaRu helps to rescue 40,000-50,000 pounds of food each week, which would normally end up being thrown away. This food is primarily fresh produce, meats & dairy.
So far in 2021, we have rescued about 550,000 pounds of food that have been given to over 50 organizations and thousands of community members.
