40% of food goes to waste while 1 in 7 in goes hungry. Food rescue heroes help to end food waste and hunger.

In as little as 30 minutes of your time, you can rescue perfectly good food from going to waste and deliver it to nonprofits who serve those who are food insecure.

Connect to your existing social media accounts to sign up to be a food rescue hero.

Set your preferences on when and where you can do food rescues.

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.

Take a selfie with your rescue and share on social media to spread the word about Food Rescue Hero and inspire your friends to be food rescue heroes!

Excellent Indie Folk ,

Brilliant concept

This could revolutionize how we address food insecurity. Love the concept, want to see it everywhere

drop-down glitch ,

App Bug

I downloaded the app. What first comes up after selecting if you want to help is a drop-down menu for your region. The two bottom selections on the drop down menu fall behind the green NEXT field. Therefore, neither of these options can be selected. The region drop down menu does not appear to scroll though it needs to be able to. I could get nowhere on this app due to this problem.

Makes saving food so easy, and honestly fun
