Care Center Partners

Meet Our Partners

Grace Church partners with local non-profits who feel called to support the Grace Care Center in a variety of ways. These partners are each key to helping us end the broken places of injustice, hatred, and decay. Learn more below to see how you can support these partners.
 

Food Rescue

Food Rescue is a network of volunteers who reclaim leftover retail food from restaurants and schools and deliver it to local food pantries and ministries. Our K-12 Food Rescue Program, in over 500 schools, provides hope to end the destructive practice of wasting 40% of our food in America. That hope lies within our K-12 students! Food Rescue empowers students to lead our country away from our culture of food waste by providing them a platform to tell the story of food waste reduction in their own school.
