Please describe your organization - - - - The Bobcat Eats Food Waste Awareness and Prevention Program is a collaboration between the University of California, Merced and the Merced County Food Bank with the goals to reduce food insecurity and food waste in the County.

There are two main components to this program.

One component is harvesting or gleaning food from Merced County farms, backyards and other food outlets. Anyone with surplus food or who wants to volunteer, can register here: mercedgleaning.org.

The second component involves distributing more food to those in need. If your community organization or non-profit is interested in picking up free food from the Food Bank, please contact emeyer4@ucmerced.edu.

Contact us today with any questions or to get involved to help fight hunger and food waste.
