Existing pantry networks struggle to accept and distribute the 80-90% FRESH food recovered by the Food Rescue Hero® network, meaning Food recovery organizations (FRO) need to expand distribution networks, creating a dramatic shift in food access. This session will look at how FRO work with service providers and communities expanding access. Looking at impact data attendees will learn why it's important to think beyond the pantry, how to approach service providers, and how to demonstrate the impact of this work to funders and other stakeholders.
