"Second Chance" to the Rescue in The Hudson Valley!

Second Chance Foods in Brewster Opens a New Kitchen June 13.

The volunteers at this nonprofit feed hungry people all over the Hudson Valley with food they've rescued from farms and food stores - food that would otherwise have been thrown away! Second Chance has grown so much - they needed to move into bigger headquarters with a larger kitchen so they can keep cooking up love! Their new location is 120 Marvin Avenue in Brewster

Here's their mission statement:

We believe that everyone should have access to fresh food and delicious meals. Join us on a mission to elevate the health of people and planet by recovering nutritious food before it goes to waste -and- delivering it to the tables of hungry families in the Hudson Valley, NY. 

We know there is plenty of food available. 40% of food is estimated to end up in landfills instead of reaching the tables of families in need. 

Our goal is to connect the fresh, healthy, available food in our area to people who need assistance – before it goes to waste.

It may sound like a lot but our process is simple!

  1. We Collect food from grocery stores, local farms, orchards, and other organizations that have a surplus.

  2. Depending on the donated food, we use our commercial kitchen to Cook or process items that need a longer shelf life or extra help to make it easy to eat.

  3. Finally, we Connect these fresh groceries and our prepared meals to those in need through local hunger relief organizations, food pantries, and our weekly distribution.
