REAL STORIES, REAL IMPACT
"Pesia's aims to reach those facing barriers in accessing surplus food. Paradoxically, over one-third of produced food goes to waste."
"In this community, one out of five persons is a Holocaust survivor. They feel less invisible, knowing that someone is thinking and caring about them."
"The people we serve come from all walks of life. This year we rescued and served more than half a million meals—food is a basic human right, a ritual connecting us all, a daily fuel setting the pace "
Grandma Pesia's Enduring Legacy
We are driven by the same compassion that fueled Grandma Pesia's life who believed food was a basic human right. We are committed to making a difference in the lives of those who are struggling. We are proud to continue her legacy of kindness and generosity by providing as much support as we can to whoever needs it.
