About this Event

The innovative technology behind Food Rescue US helps address one of the biggest barriers to food donation: how to transport it. Food Rescue US enlists volunteers who use their own cars to transfer excess food from businesses that have too much to agencies serving people who have too little. Using a handy app, they self-select food runs to fit their schedules; the whole process usually takes about 30-45 minutes and is extremely rewarding. Some runs are even bikeable or walkable.

To learn more and to sign up to be a Food Rescuer, check out http://foodrescue.us/ or contact the DC Site Director, Kate Urbank at kate@foodrescue.us for more information.
