The Stavrand, in partnership with Kind Traveler’s Every Stay Gives Back community impact certification, supports Farm to Pantry in Sonoma County, California.

Farm to Pantry

Mission:

The Mission of Farm to Pantry is to bring together communities to end food injustice and reverse global warming by rescuing and sharing locally-grown food with those who have been systematically marginalized. 

Why is it important?

By rescuing food that would otherwise be wasted, Farm to Pantry helps reduce the eight percent of global greenhouse gas emissions that food waste accounts for annually. Food rescue keeps methane-producing material out of our air and ensures nutritious food access to our struggling community members. Up to 40 percent of all food in the U.S. ends up in landfills. By diverting food waste from landfills, methane pollution is prevented from entering the atmosphere; in 2021, they spared the air of 361 metric tons of carbon dioxide, which is equivalent to the greenhouse gas emissions of 44 homes over a year or taking more than 77 cars off the road for a year. Additionally, since 2008, more than 5 million servings of fruits and vegetables have been delivered to families in need. In the U.S., 40 percent of food is wasted when 6.1 million US children live in food-insecure households.
