Focusing on the complex and variable dynamics of retail food recovery, Food Rescue Hero automates the time-consuming tasks to coordinate operations seamlessly. The app alerts volunteer drivers about surplus food nearby and guides each donation pick up and delivery, every step of the way. Since 2016, Food Rescue Hero has coordinated more than 150 million pounds of perfectly good food from getting wasted and redirected to the people who need it.
Our model merges technology, civic engagement, and public-private partnerships to introduce a new transport and distribution model that transforms surplus food into a resource and changes the way we approach food access.
And we are seeing sustainable, scalable and measurable impact.
