The 5 & 2 Program

Our Mission is to Turn Waste into Sustenance by Reducing Food Waste Among Food Companies, Starting with the Rastelli Family of Companies.

Our Vision is to Reduce Hunger in Our Communities, by Supplying Organizations that Feed Our Homeless and People in Need.

Our Method is to Act as a Hub to Supply Food from Food Companies to Organizations that Feed People in Need.

Just the Facts

  • Food Companies Wasted $57 Billion of Food in 2018.

  • 40 Million Americans Struggled with Hunger in 2018.

  • Several food companies don’t have the resources to utilize their waste effectively or to find outlets that can turn waste into necessary nourishment.

  • Many non-profit and community-based organizations lack the means to procure and/or transport food.

  • Rastelli Cares and 5&2 rely on 100% uncompensated volunteer staff members.

  • Rastelli’s charitable efforts and programs will be funded entirely by Rastelli Foods Group in 2019. There are currently no plans to apply for grants, government contracts, or to conduct and fundraising efforts.
