How can we be grow beyond being anti-war and into being pro-peace?

The FRP works to achieve our mission to rescue waster food by providing education and awareness to the community, partnering with local professional food establishments, and restaurants and agencies related to hunger relief and waste reduction, and advocating for the EPA Food Rescue Challenge, which informs the FRP Vision for a Quad Cities Community dedicated to eliminating food waste.
