Because of our dedicated partners, food donors, volunteer Food Rescue Heroes, and supporters, we’ve made significant strides in our mission to combat food waste and hunger. 

The report highlights 412 Food Rescue achievements such as surpassing a lifetime milestone of 26 million pounds of food rescued, delivering over 100,000 meals directly to the homes of our most vulnerable neighbors with our Home Delivery program, and much more!

This achievement is a testament to the unstoppable movement we have created, a grassroots effort driven by the passion and commitment of people like you who care about their communities and the planet.

It also highlights the momentum of the powerful Food Rescue Hero Network across North America. With 15 partners covering over 25 cities and surpassing a remarkable 100 million pounds of food recovered, we are on our way to achieving our goal of 100 cities by 2030. 

We invite you to delve into the comprehensive report, where you can witness the tangible impact you’ve made and gain a deeper understanding of the positive changes achieved. Your contributions have been truly transformative, and we want to express our heartfelt gratitude for your unwavering support.

The release of this report is a proud moment for our entire community. With the support of our partners, volunteers, and donors, we’ve demonstrated that small actions can have a profound impact on the lives of those experiencing food insecurity and the environment. 

However, our work is far from done. As we look forward we will continue our mission with renewed vigor, striving to create a more sustainable and food-secure future for all. Together, we can rescue even more food and build a stronger, more resilient community. 

Thank you for being a part of this unstoppable movement!
