412 Food Rescue is a social enterprise with a technology and logistics model that aims to fight hunger and promote sustainability by preventing perfectly good food from entering the waste stream and directly distributing to organizations that benefit those who are hungry.
Founded in 2015, 412 Food Rescue is one of the fastest-growing food recovery organizations in the U.S. Creating the infrastructure for national retailers, 412 Food Rescue has prevented over 5 million pounds of food from going to waste via technology that mobilizes over 5,000 drivers--food rescue heroes--the largest volunteer food transport network in a single urban region. It is a scalable and replicable food recovery model that eliminates friction from retail and nonprofit operations, facilitating adoption and creating measurable impact on hunger.
412 Food Rescue's distribution model bridges the last mile and significantly impacts access and food security. Its innovative approach has been featured in national media including NPR, Food & Wine, Saveur, Martha Stewart Living, Organic Life, Bust Magazine, Success Magazine and Civil Eats.
