Fiscal Year: 

Tri-Valley Haven(TVH) is a non-profit organization in Livermore creating homes safe from abuse and contributing to a more peaceful society one person, one family, one community at a time. In addition to running a food pantry, they operate multiple shelters, a thrift store, and crisis support services for individuals and families in the Tri-Valley area and Alameda County. StopWaste funding will support Tri-Valley Haven's new expanded Food Pantry which has returned to a Client Choice model, allowing clients to select their own food instead of receiving a pre-packed bag of groceries. This model reduces food waste, meets clients health needs and upholds their dignity, allows the pantry to order foods that are more in demand, and reduces staff and volunteer time pre-packing food items. Additionally, TVH will be adding more grocery rescue locations, projecting more than 200,000 pounds of food rescued, and expanding their Mobile Food Pantry operations to more housing locations.
