Food Rescue

About Food Rescue

412 Food Rescue addresses the disconnect in distribution—in supply and access—by rescuing food about to go to waste and directly distributing to organizations that serve communities in need. We redirect unsellable yet viable, fresh, healthy food to those who are food insecure.  

Nonprofit Partners

We partner with a network of nonprofits that grows daily. Innovative partnerships with organizations whose primary mission may not be to fight hunger but serves populations who are food insecure, allow us to reach individuals and households who may not be able to access other hunger services. 

Food Donors

Our donor partners range from large food distributors to small mom-and-pop stores, restaurant chains, urban farms and even other nonprofits! No matter how big or small the donor or donation, every partner has a significant impact.

Liability & Food Safety

Food safety is one of our key values. All of our staff are ServSafe certified and all of our volunteers complete a mobile food safety training program focused on food transport.
