Combatting hunger together

ABOUT US

Miles 4 Meals is a ground-floor, nonprofit organization focused on addressing food insecurity in San Diego and the county by recovering and rescuing surplus food from military dining facilities and local businesses and distributing it to those in need. Operating with a small team, our mission is to efficiently utilize available resources to make a meaningful impact on hunger in our community and combat homelessness.

OUR VALUES

Food Rescue, Not Waste

We acknowledge the immense food waste problem while many in our community go hungry. To tackle this, we collaborate with local retailers, farms, and sources to save edible food from being thrown away. By redirecting this food to those in need, we combat waste and nourish the food-insecure. Our focus on rescue addresses immediate hunger and promotes sustainability.

It Takes a Village

We believe in engaging the community. We involve individuals, families, businesses, and organizations. Together, we address hunger in San Diego County. Through volunteering, education, and events, we create a sense of shared responsibility and impact. By fostering awareness and empowerment, we alleviate hunger and inspire action.

Collaboration and Solidarity

We are committed to combating hunger through community collaboration, working closely with individuals, families, organizations, and leaders. By listening to those affected, we gain valuable insights to develop tailored, sustainable solutions that address unique challenges. This ensures our efforts make a lasting impact.
