About this app


40% of food goes to waste while 1 in 7 in goes hungry. Food rescue heroes take powerful part in the solution.

In as little as 30 minutes of your time, you can rescue perfectly good food from going to waste and deliver it to nonprofits who serve those who are food insecure.

Connect to your existing social media accounts to sign up to be a food rescue hero.

Set your preferences on when and where you can do food rescues.

Get alerts when rescues become available. Opt in to rescues that fit your schedule. Rescue everyday, every week or just give it a try.

Food rescue heroes get information on where to pick up the food and where to drop it off—we guide you every step of the way.

The app gives you information about the work that the nonprofit you are delivering to. And because you drop off at directly to the organization that will distribute the food, you see the impact you have made on hunger.

Take a selfie with your rescue and share on social media to spread the word about 412 Food Rescue and inspire your friends to be food rescue heroes!

Add ability to scroll through other rescues available at the same location without leaving the rescue screen. It takes what seems like forever to navigate back to the rescue list for that location since it is rescanning the entire database. I realize that is done to ensure the info is current but in the unlikely event that a rescue was claimed out from under that screen you can simply show an error when the user attempts to claim it.

Great app, for a wonderful organization. So easy to use - you pick a rescue that fits your schedule, and it walks you through the process, starting with the donors name and number, directions, then the receivers name and number and directions to them. With the option for choosing a weekly rescue. Makes it easy and simple to volunteer!

This is a really good idea. I just wish there was something like this in my area. I would personally go around getting restaurants on board but I don't know how to make an app and all the ones I'm seeing are city specific and nowhere close to me
