Transported by a growing network of volunteers, 412 Food Rescue directly transfers food to nonprofit partners that serve those who are food insecure.
It matches food donations to the appropriate nonprofits, coordinates a last-mile transportation network of volunteers, trains volunteers on food safety and tracks data and analytics—measuring impact on hunger and the environment.
This program creates new markets for farmers via a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program for previously unsellable fruits and vegetables.
Volunteer groups harvest produce that would otherwise go to waste and redistribute it to nonprofits that serve those who are experiencing food insecurity.
We believe that food education is an essential step in linking the farm to table disconnect and ensuring that the fresh food we deliver makes it to families’ tables.
412 Food Rescue will soon create healthy, heat-and-eat meals, as well as shelf-stable products and other innovative solutions to ending food waste and hunger in our communities.
Creativity. Resourcefulness. Patience. Innovation. All are necessary in concocting special, delicious, and one-of-a-kind products from food that would otherwise be wasted.
