Iskashitaa prevents food waste in Tucson

while refugees integrate into the community


Iskashitaa Refugee Network creates opportunities to integrate UN refugees into the Southern Arizona community while educating the public, strengthening the local food system, reducing local food waste, and increasing food security.

  • Together, we reduce local food waste and precious water resources
  • Together, we assist families, not landfills.
  • Together, we harvest and glean over 100,000 pounds annually.
