About Us

Want to do something about food waste and hunger on your own schedule? The innovative technology behind Food Rescue US helps address one of the biggest barriers to food donation: how to transport it. Food Rescue US enlists volunteers who use their own cars to transfer excess food from businesses that have too much to agencies serving people who have too little. Using a handy app, they self-select food runs to fit their schedules; the whole process usually takes about 30 minutes and it's extremely rewarding. Some runs are even bikeable or walkable.
