Since 2012, INDY VIA's have raised over $136,000 with 50 telethons in support of the Food Rescue mission to support our mission to empower students to lead the #FoodIsNotTrash movement in schools. These telethons represent 10% of Food Rescue's annual budget, and now over 28 million food items have been logged onto our K-12 Food Rescue Log Tool.
