SPH alumni Kelzee Tibbetts, Hannah Volkman and Sam Friedrichsen were recently featured in City Pages’ People Issue for their work as food rescuers. “It doesn’t make sense that there’s all this food waste and all this hunger in the U.S.,” says Tibbetts. By 2016, they had alchemized their outrage into action, creating a nonprofit and building a network of partners and volunteers. Today, they have 58 active volunteers and conduct 15 to 20 food rescues each week, stocking larders across the Twin Cities. There are 11 “staff members,” but it’s still a volunteer-run organization. “Headquarters is my kitchen table,” says Volkman.
