412 Food Rescue is a direct response to the disconnect between the fact that we waste 40% of our food while 1 in 8 goes hungry. Utilizing technology (Food Rescue Hero) and civic engagement, 412 Food Rescue collects surplus food that might otherwise be thrown away and delivers it immediately to organizations that serve those who are food insecure. 412 Food Rescue relies on our community of partners, financial supporters, and volunteers to pursue our mission of ending food waste and hunger throughout the region.


To automate the time consuming and variable coordination of food recovery, 412 Food Rescue created the Food Rescue Hero software that we license to users throughout the USA and Canada. This unique software, with mobile functionality, enables scalable impact on food waste, food insecurity and climate change.
