Food insecurity is defined by the USDA as a situation of “limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate and safe foods or limited or uncertain ability to acquire acceptable foods in socially acceptable ways.”
Our vision is that Keep US Fed Montgomery County (KUSF) will help solve hunger in our county using perfectly good food that otherwise would have become part of the waste stream.
Located in Montgomery County, Texas USA, KUSF is non-profit 501(c)(3), 100% volunteer based organization and a “food run” is the core of our volunteer work. We partner with Donor organizations, such as local restaurants, catering companies and event planners. When they have extra food that may otherwise go into the trash, they contact us for a pick up. Our Food Handlers Certified volunteers pick up the food, weigh and sort it and then pack it for safe delivery to our partner Recipients, such as shelters, group homes and food pantries that are serving food insecure residents of the county. It’s really that simple.
To learn more about our partnership organizations, hover over “About” in the navigation bar at the top of the page and select the organization from the pick list.
