help move meals

How It Works

We believe we can end hunger by connecting restaurants and stores that have excess food to different neighborhood charities that run meal programs. This moves nutritious food away from the waste stream and onto the plate of someone in need.

Hunger is a distribution problem, not a supply problem.

Together, we can solve it.

Restaurants donate excess prepared and perishable food. Charities receive and share the food with those in need in their community.

We connect restaurants and charities, providing logistics support and public outreach through our online platform.

Your donation goes straight to the charity you select, helping cover the cost of safe and reliable transportation and storage of food.

How far can $5 go?

The impact statistics are based on our data from rescuing over 1 million pounds of food.

Help The Environment
By Decreasing Food Waste

Wasting food means not only money down the drain, but also all of the resources needed to grow and distribute that food in the first place.

Food waste ranks as a top emitter of greenhouse gases estimated at 3.3 billion tons of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere each year.

3.5 billion acres of land, 28 percent of the world’s agricultural area, is used annually to produce food that’s never eaten.

More than 20% of all cultivated land, 30% of forests and 10% of grasslands are undergoing degradation.
