The Simple Solution for Feeding More & Wasting Less

The Community Food Rescue network of businesses, volunteers and hunger relief organizations is committed to eliminating hunger and food waste here in Montgomery County. We use innovative technology to find perfectly good food that local businesses would have thrown away, and dispatch volunteers to deliver it to agencies serving people who may not know where their next meal will come from.

How You Can Help

Local farms and businesses with unsaleable and unused foods – donate to hunger relief organizations.

Volunteers – transport food from donating businesses to food assistance groups.

Food pantries, churches, other food assistance groups – receive donated food, based on your needs and delivered to your doorstep.
