Food Rescue Program
Our daily Food Rescue Program is unique from food banking, termed ‘rescue’ because we are keeping good, edible food from being lost to a landfill. The process is simple: overage food from restaurants, grocers, corporate cafeterias, schools, and more is collected and delivered directly to nonprofit shelters, missions, pantries, and centers where it is used to feed people who are disadvantaged and food insecure. Food is donated and distributed free of charge within the same community from which it came. In an hour or less, each individual ‘food rescue’ is completed with the help of staff drivers and a network of volunteers, allowing
Food Finders to rescue millions of pounds of food annually. All of this is done using our volunteer mobilization app, Food Finders, which you can download from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store
We rescue everything from dairy and bakery items to produce, deli, meats, and prepared items, along with canned and packaged goods.
