Who we are?

Share My Meals is a non-profit public charity that fights food insecurity in the Princeton area. We work with local entities seeking to curb the environmental impact of food waste by providing their excess inventory to people in need. Our organization connects these two realities and creates a positive outcome for our community and our environment.

The Waste Watcher Program is a sustainable food recovery process, approved by the local health department, that distributes surplus meals from the cafeterias of local corporations, schools, universities, and restaurants to food-insecure members of the community.

We are creating a Share My Meals movement in Princeton.

Our efforts are aligned with broader national initiatives, including government programs and regulations which provide clarity and incentives for corporations that aim to reduce food waste. Share My Meals is entirely run by volunteers who have the desire to rebalance the food equation: Less waste = Less hunger
