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. Our work 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.
We work with food distributors, retailers, caterers and restaurants who want to save food from going to waste. Our partnerships with community organizations like shelters, housing sites, backpack projects, and soup kitchens transform what would have been sent to a landfill into nutritious food. Our network of #FoodRescueHeroes generously give their time in this fight against hunger and food waste.
