NONPROFIT SPOTLIGHT: Little John’s
Little John’s is a Madison nonprofit founded by Chef Dave Heide that takes an innovative approach to increasing food security using efficiencies of scale and turning food excess into food access. The organization saves hundreds of thousands of pounds of food, donated rather than going to local landfills, and transforms the excess into delicious and nutritious meals at little to no cost. Currently, Little John’s serves 6,000 meals weekly to people of all ages throughout Dane County and is working to become a pay-what-you-can restaurant, commissary kitchen and military veteran culinary training program.
