40% of food goes to waste while 1 in 7 in goes hungry. Food runners take powerful part in the solution.

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 runner.

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 runnners 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 Runners and inspire your friends to be food rescue heroes!

Hardly an app

While I support the goals of the Food Runners organization, this app is basically a static web form. For it to make sense as a mobile app, it should make use of any of the features of the mobile platform (especially GPS and calendar integrations).

Food Runners San Francisco

Food Runners is a great way to donate excess food and help relay it to those who need it most in San Francisco.

Developer Response ,

We're sorry to hear that you had a not-so-great experience. Can you provide us a little more detail about where in the app you were experiencing lag? Which features were you looking for that you felt were missing? That information would help us improve the app.
