About The Org

Our Mission

412 Food Rescue was founded as a direct response to the fact that while we waste 40% of our food, 1 in 7 people are hungry. 412 Food Rescue bridges the disconnect between food waste, hunger, and environmental sustainability by redirecting perfectly viable food headed for the landfill directly to nonprofits who serve individuals and families who are experiencing food insecurity.

What We Do

412 Food Rescue works with food retailers to prevent surplus food from going to waste by mobilizing volunteer Food Rescue Heroes to directly transport this food to organizations that serve those who are experiencing food insecurity; meeting clients where they already are and bridging the last mile of food access.

412 Food Rescue's technology platform is an end-to-end system that matches food donations to the appropriate nonprofits, mobilizes a last-mile transportation network of volunteers, trains volunteers on food safety and tracks data and analytics - measuring impact on hunger and the environment. Food Rescue Hero is a mobile app that was launched in November 2016 and represents the first phase of the platform.

412 Food Rescue creates new markets for farmers via a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program for previously unsellable fruits and vegetables.

412 Food Rescue gleans fruit from previously unharvested public and private city trees, and excess produce from urban farms.

412 Food Rescue provides comprehensive food education for our nonprofit partners via the Cooking Matters curriculum to teach our end users how to cook and shop for healthy food on a budget.

412 Food Rescue collaborates with local producers to create innovative products from food that would otherwise be wasted. Examples include beer from surplus bread, liqueur, cider, and beer from foraged produce, and ice cream utilizing foraged mulberries and bananas.

412 Food Rescue stabilizes surplus food and transforms it into fresh, healthy, affordable prepared meals and shelf stable products while serving as a community engagement and education hub.
