Organization Information

Mission Statement

Last Mile is a Greater Cincinnati food rescue organization on a mission to save good food and get it to those who need it most. We empower local change-makers like you to make a critical difference in the lives of our neighbors fighting food insecurity. By using the power of volunteers fueled by technology, we connect Food Donors with nonprofits who serve the region’s food insecure, fighting food waste and helping to end the hunger that’s closest to home.

Description

Did you know that 1 in 5 people in Cincinnati don't know where their next meal is coming from? Meanwhile as much as 40% of good food is thrown away due to surplus in grocery stores, distributors, restaurants, and event venues. This good food fills up landfills and lets off harmful greenhouse gases as it decomposes. We're here to put an end to food waste in Cincinnati.

Last Mile uses the power of technology to connect volunteer drivers to food rescue pick ups. Volunteers simply download an app, create a profile, and can start claiming rescues right away. We're the UBER of food rescue. Most rescues take under an hour to complete and anyone can do it with just a smart phone, a vehicle, and an hour to spare!
