what we do
We Rescue Food
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.
We create community
Our model empowers communities to serve themselves with the support of our technology. All participants in our work are members of the communities that we serve, including our food donors, rescuers, and agency partners.
JOIN OUR MOVEMENT
Our technology will guide you to available rescues by day, time, or location. Once you’ve signed-up, you will see instructions on where to pick-up the food and deliver it, along with any other details you need to complete the rescue.
BRING FOOD RESCUE US TO YOUR COMMUNITY
BECOME A FOOD DONOR OR AGENCY PARTNER
If you are a business with a surplus of food or an organization that wants to receive food, please contact your local Site Director to get involved.
