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 your budget, better for our community, 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. If everyone reading this donated, we could achieve our goals for years. Please join us!

For a mail-in donation, 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, package meals, and distribute them to the community.

Every Friday, from 9 am to noon, we pack and distribute these meals for free to the community out of the Jefferson Avenue Presbyterian Church parking lot.

We also need volunteers every other Thursday and Saturday.
