Food Rescue US
Food Rescue US is committed to reducing hunger and food waste. Food Rescue US https://foodrescue.us/ uses a unique model of food rescue that is simple, sustainable, and scalable. Using technology, a proprietary app, we engage volunteers to rescue excess fresh food from grocers, restaurants, and other sources that would have otherwise been thrown away and deliver it to social service agencies that feed individuals and families who are food insecure.
Within Westport, we recover from food donors like Trader Joe’s Westport, Mystic Market, and Wakeman Town Farm and provide that food to social service agency partners serving the community like A Better Chance, Project Return, and Gillespie Center as well as Bridgeport and Norwalk social service agency partners. We also have 205 registered volunteer food rescuers in Westport committed to our duel mission of ending hunger and reducing food waste.
Due to COVID-19, we have started a COVID-19 Response Fund to help us address the critical need within our communities. Anyone interested in making a tax-deductible donation can visit this link.
