Get alerts when rescues become available. Opt in to rescues that fit your schedule. Rescue everyday, every week or just give it a try.
Food rescue heroes get information on where to pick up the food and where to drop it off—we guide you every step of the way.
The app gives you information about the work that the nonprofit you are delivering to. And because you drop off at directly to the organization that will distribute the food, you see the impact you have made on hunger.

Ratings and Reviews
Looking forward to seeing this work. A couple suggestions: the t&c require drivers license, though it is not collected. Remove from t&c as there is no need for it. For that matter, no need for home address since location services is fine for locating. In general, the less personal information you collect the less will be available to hackers. Also what is up with signing a waiver AND agreeing to t&c? No app does that. You are creating needless addition barrier to signup.
Awesome app and service!
The app takes you through the entire rescue from pick up to drop off. Each step of the process is clear and easy to understand. Love it!
Doesn’t work and not in my area
This app has good intentions but there is nothing offered where I live. I keep getting notifications that I can pick things up but they’re many states away from me, despite having set my location. Frustrating.
Developer Response ,
We're sorry to hear that you're frustrated, Carynn. This app serves the Pittsburgh region - our name is based on the area code here. So unfortunately it doesn't include food rescues available near you. 412 Food Rescue is part of the larger Food Rescue Hero network, currently covering 11 cities across North America. We do not have any partners in the Key Largo, FL area as of now, but we are always looking to expand our efforts to end food waste and hunger!
