Mission Statement

WHAT WE DO We Rescue Food: Using technology, we engage volunteers to transfer fresh food surpluses from local businesses to social service agencies serving the food insecure. Local volunteers use our technology to sign up for a "food rescue" and schedule the pick up and delivery. We create community: Our model empowers communities to serve themselves with the support of our technology. All participants in our work are members of the communities that we serve, including our food donors, rescuers, and agency partners. BE THE RESCUE. https://foodrescue.us/rescue-food/
