53 million Americans live in a food desert with little access to fresh produce

With our network of 1,100+ transportation partners, we can bring more perishable and non-perishable to communities in need across North America.

We are very excited about the impact we are making and will continue to make, reducing food waste and fighting hunger in our communities. The amount of fresh healthy food available to rescue is staggering.

By creatively partnering with like-minded organizations, and applying transportation and cold storage solutions, we are successfully capturing viable healthy food and redirecting it to the people who really need it. There is enough food for everyone, we just need to apply a little ingenuity, resources, and teamwork to bring them together.

FAQ

Is there a fee?

No! Our transportation services are 100% free to the donor and the food bank.
 

Can you transport gleaned product and other fresh fruits and vegetables?

Yes!

Can you transport food/drinks that need to be refrigerated?

Sometimes! We have a limited number of partners with access to refrigerated trucks. While we cannot guarantee pickups of food that require refrigeration, we will do our best to accommodate requests when possible.
 

Can you make regular pickups?

Yes! We would love to schedule regular pickups if you have weekly or monthly donations.
 

Is there a minimum amount of food required to schedule a pickup?

Yes, the minimum food donation is 500 pounds.
 

How far are you able to travel for a pickup/delivery?

Transportation should be less than 100 miles round trip. In some cases, we are able to accommodate longer trips, but generally, the shorter the distance, the more likely it is we can help.
 

Is there any food you won’t transport?

We’re working to fight food insecurity, so we only transport food that will ultimately be offered to clients for free. Food should be palletized and/or packaged and ready for pickup. We are not able to transport prepared food items, such as leftover hot meals from a restaurant or catered event.
