Food Rescue Transport

Our team of volunteers fight food waste and sustain communities across the region every day. Together we've rescued more than two million pounds of food, and it's easy to join the team. Download the Philly Food Rescue app in Google Play or the App Store, create a profile, and turn on notifications to find opportunities near you. We often post rescues on social media, too.

In the app, you can claim a food rescue on one-time or weekly basis. It will tell you when and where to pick up surplus food and give you a nearby drop point at a local nonprofit or housing community. In less than an hour, you can keep good food out of the waste stream, ensuring your neighbors have more of what they need.

Most food rescues fit in a standard car. Some can be done on bikes or even public transport. We try to keep all donation deliveries within five miles or under a half hour's drive. Philly Food Rescue operates across Philadelphia as well as Delaware, Bucks, Montgomery, Chester, and Camden counties. Join the #FoodRescueHero movement today.
