40% of the
food produced
gets wasted.

412 Food Rescue prevents perfectly good
food from entering the waste stream.


We fight

412 Food Rescue redirects fresh, healthy
food from going to landfills to serving
those who are food insecure.


We promote

Rescuing surplus food
preserves the resources that go
into food production and
prevents greenhouse gas impact
in landfills.


412 Food Rescue creates programs and infrastructure designed to scale and replicate food recovery in urban regions.
