Our Supporters

Together, We Make an Impressive Difference in Our Community

We are fortunate to receive support from many organizations within our community. We are proud to feature just a few of these important partners who enable us to provide uninterrupted deliveries of healthy, perishable food to the members of our recipient agency network. Without their support we could not fulfill our mission of collecting perishable food and delivering it to those who need it. We are profoundly grateful to all.

$50,000+ Donors

Thermo King Corporation was founded 80 years ago to ensure the safe, refrigerated transport of perishable foods so that people could enjoy fresh, healthy meals both locally and around the world.

 

As part of the “We Move Food” program, we aim to close the very real gap between the 41 million Americans who struggle with hunger and the nearly $220 billion dollars of food that is thrown away each year in the U.S.

 

Recognizing that transport refrigeration plays a critical role in eliminating food waste and increasing food stability, our partnership with Waste Not provides a real connection between excess food and those who need it most.

Thermo King is excited to watch this program grow as we further leverage our strong programs like Waste Not. We are happy to support Waste Not financially in order to offset the costs of operating and maintaining a refrigerated fleet, which is the heart of a successful food recovery model.

Halle-Foundation-4.png

The mission of the Diane & Bruce Halle Foundation is to strengthen the daily operations and lifelong outcomes for the people and communities of the state of Arizona. The Foundation focuses on building, strengthening and sustaining innovative organizations.

Waste Not has had a relationship with the Foundation since 2008 and is most grateful for their infrastructure investments in our organization over the past three years so that we could build capacity to serve so many more people. We couldn't have done it without you.

caljet-logo.png

Founded in 1982, by Dave Alexander, with only 138,000 barrels of storage, Caljet is now the largest independent motor fuels terminal in the U.S. Southwest, having grown to over 1,090,000 barrels of storage. Caljet continues to expand its operations, striving to provide its clients, and citizens of Arizona, enough terminal storage of petroleum products for a growing market, convenience, and value-added service. In addition to its core work, Caljet & Mr. Alexander actively support the local community as well as charities in other parts of the country through significant investments in groups ranging from The Boy Scouts to the American Heart Association & the Heart Ball. Waste Not is proud to be among these key charitable investments. During the past five years, we are most grateful for Dave Alexander and his companies for championing the work of feeding hungry people by being one of our very top supporters.

Frys-Food-and-Drug.png

Fry’s Food & Drug has been in the grocery business for 134 years. This experience has taught the company a few things about food and people and that meals matter – families who share meals together have children who do better in every aspect of their lives. With more than 40% of the food produced in the U.S. wasted, yet 1 in 8 Americans struggling with hunger (and the stats in Arizona are worse), the company knows that food waste undermines food security and it is committed to helping.

Kroger Co. Foundation, in a dedicated partnership with the Fry’s operating division of the Kroger Family of Companies, is strategically focused on advancing Kroger’s Zero Hunger I Zero Waste social impact plan. Waste Not is grateful for the Kroger Foundation’s social commitments which included a $10,000 grant in 2018. Thank you for being a valuable partner that understands the enormity of our food hunger and food waste challenges and is willing to step in to help!
