Our Mission: Zero Waste for Zero Hunger



You've helped us feed hungry people, making a better, well-fed community. 



Resources are finite.
We can't afford to waste.



Waste less and do more with limited resources. 

We'll continue toward zero waste.

GOALZERO Recycling was born out of Care and Share’s desire to minimize mountains of food and packaging waste. Rather than being part of the problem, trailblazers at the food bank wanted to be a part of the solution. After years of innovations, Care and Share now diverts 85% of waste from the landfills.

Please continue to recycle.

You've got packaging, paper, boxes, and other materials you don't need in your home, business, or organization. Don't send it to the landfill! Even though free public recycling with GOALZERO ended May 25, please continue to recycle instead of adding to landfills.
