40% of food goes to waste while 1 in 7 in goes hungry. Food rescue heroes 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 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 Philly Food Rescue and inspire your friends to be food rescue heroes!

Provides a great solution to two issues
This app is amazing. I love the concept and I think everything runs smoothly on the platform. They are super personal with their support as well, texting and calling with any changes or important information. My only suggestion is make it easier to share this with friends and spread the concept! How can we grow the platform as individuals, can we sign up or submit new business ourselves?
Keep up the great work!
They’ve made it so easy to help!
I’m so grateful this app exists! Someone was in touch as soon as I signed up, helping me to get started and immediately connecting me with a pick-up location. The app itself is super user-friendly, and walks the volunteer through exactly what they need to do and where they need to go!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
