With many vineyards completely destroyed by the wildfires in Napa and Sonoma County, Food Recovery Network and The Wine RayZyn Company have partnered to repurpose unharvested wine grapes from vineyards affected and turn them into Rescue RayZyns™.
While most wine grapes affected by the fires are no longer suitable for making wine, they are great for making Wine RayZyns, a crunchy superfood snack made from wine grapes, hand-harvested in Napa and surrounding areas by The Wine RayZyn Company.
The Rescue RayZyns™ initiative is a way to eliminate food waste and feed victims of natural disasters.
Turning damaged wine grapes into Rescue RayZyns™ will provide a “second harvest” for laborers and vineyards, taking grapes that would otherwise go unused and use them to feed those affected. This project represents a key step toward helping raise awareness around eliminating food waste and highlighting the ability to repurpose the fallout of one disaster to directly benefit victims of other natural disasters.
