Our App

Scalable. Sustainable.

Food Rescue US App

Our award-winning web-based app is integral to our model and is a large part of what makes Food Rescue US so sustainable and scalable. Volunteers, food donors, and social service agencies utilize our app to participate in food recovery work all across the country.


1. Reduces food waste by giving food donors the opportunity to transfer their excess food to social service agencies

2. Provides meals to the food insecure by giving social service agencies the ability to join and receive food

Yes. Food Rescue US rescues food seven days a week. All rescues are visible when you login.

We understand that things come up and have made it easy to cancel a rescue within the app. We ask that you please give as much notice as possible so that we can find someone else to complete the food rescue.

Yes! We encourage volunteers to “adopt” rescues so they become part of their routine. There’s always someone to cover for you if you’re periodically not available.

If you are interested in donating your surplus food or receiving food, visit our location page to find a site near you and contact your local Site Director to learn more.
