We Rescue Food

112872976_3617948541557969_530208658760281107_o

Using technology, we engage volunteers to transfer fresh food surpluses from local businesses to social service agencies serving the food insecure.

We Help The Environment

Currently, food waste is contributing 8 percent of total global greenhouse gas emissions. According to Project Drawdown, reducing food waste by 50% by 2050 would result in 26.2 gigatons of avoided CO2e.
