A Food Rescue Funding Program from FPDS

One Million Kitchens

FPDS is a Polish foundation that has prepared and donated more than 2.5 million free meals since 1992. 

We developed a program to provide funding for Food Rescue services globally. Our goal is to provide more than $1 billion per year to support Food Rescue Services, beginning in Boston.

One Million Kitchens installs the EcoThermal Filter that collects waste heat from the cooking surface at commercial kitchens. We recycle the heat to warm water for washing dishes at participating kitchens. Kitchens buy the metered hot water from us, for less than they pay for heating water with gas, electricity or propane.  Read more


Food rescue involves the collection of food that would go to waste, but is still edible. Many food rescue organizations collect food from restaurants, schools, hospitals and various commercial kitchens. The food is delivered to shelters and to those in need.    Read more


We install the EcoThermal Filter at our cost at commercial kitchens that serve at least 250 meals a day, using plates and cutlery.   These restaurants, schools, hospital, hotels, prisons, etc can save up to $3,500 per year from our program, without investing a dime.  


Every year, $1,200 is donated to local Food Rescue organizations from each participating kitchen.    Read more
