Rosenthal Fresh Food Initiative

Grocers, restaurants and retailers can ensure surplus and close-to-code food ends up in the hands of those who need it the most, instead of in the trash. Through our Rosenthal Fresh Food Initiative, we collect dry, refrigerated, and frozen products from your company and provide it to our neighbors in need. Each year, with your help, we provide more than 4.3 million meals through the Rosenthal Fresh Food Initiative.

We also accept donations from companies of non-food, personal care items such as shampoo and toothpaste, along with household items like paper goods and cleaning supplies.

Some participating retailers include:

  • Kroger
  • Meijer
  • Remke Bigg’s
  • Sam’s Club
  • Target
  • Whole Foods Market
  •  The Fresh Market
  • Wal-Mart
