Welcome to the Food Rescue Locator, a directory of organizations across the United States that rescue, glean, transport, prepare, and distribute food to the needy in their communities. Often staffed by volunteers, food rescue programs play an important role in feeding the hungry and reducing food waste. Please contact the individual food recovery organizations to learn about donation needs, guidelines and potential tax deductions before donating food.
