“This project is helping us plan and match our donations, making it easier for us to do our work. What’s extra valuable was that not only will this project help us to better plan for volume and volunteers needed, but it connected us with team members from Covestro that we can continue to call if we have additional problems. This deepens our relationship with Covestro, as well.”
-412 Food Rescue’s CEO and Co-Founder Leah Lizarondo
