Become a Food Rescuer
Let us help you access more food.
Your organization's food programs can flourish with greater access to fresh, nutritious food.
We can all reduce our environmental impact by rescuing good, edible food instead of throwing it away.
That's why we built this system just for you.
FoodRescue.ca is a free, online tool that offers the flexibility for
any organization to rescue
any kind of food,
from any type of food business,
any time you need it.

- Charities and not-for-profit organizations with food programs apply to become Food Rescuers

- FoodRescue.ca matches donations to the capacities of each recipient organization
- Rescuers agree to pickup at the time and location specified
- Recipient organizations verify donations, so that donors know their good food has been rescued
