About MTA

At MTA we save food that is destined for the landfill, this happens for a number of reasons. Stores have a continual rotation of product, which sometimes means perfectly wonderful food gets thrown away. Sometimes the food is close to Best Buy date, past the best buy date, has damaged packaging or is separated from bulk packages.

We have a team of dedicated volunteers who work incredibly hard each week to sort and divide large amounts of food, into individual boxes available to families, for a small donation. In addition to making this food as assessable to our members as possible we also use donations to fund our Project Rainbow, which is dedicated to donating free boxes to families in need of a little extra help,
