Support our mission to end food waste.

Ready to take action to reduce wasted food? There are lots of ways you can support this work, including donating funds, donating food, volunteering, or making a commitment to take action on food waste in your own home and community.


Donate funds

We’re a community of people who know that food is better eaten than wasted. It’s better for our budgets, better for our communities, and better for our planet.

As a nonprofit, we rely on your donations to help make Detroit and beyond a better place to live and eat.

Your generous donation helps us get more food to people instead of landfills.

For mail-in donations, please make checks payable to Make Food Not Waste and send to:

Jefferson Avenue Presbyterian Church
8625 E. Jefferson Ave.,
Detroit, MI 48124


Lend a hand at the Upcycling Kitchen. You can help prep food in the kitchen, get meals ready for distribution, or help sort items in our pantry.

Shifts are available at the Salvation Army Kitchen or at Jefferson Avenue Presbyterian Church. Click “sign up” to view days and times.
