Food Rescue US

Mission

Using our web-based app, we engage volunteers to transfer fresh food surpluses from local businesses to social service agencies serving the food insecure.

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.

Our model empowers communities to serve themselves with the support of our app. All participants in our work are members of the communities that we serve, including our food donors, rescuers, and agency partners.
