Become a Food Rescue Hero

Volunteers transport food from donors to recipient partners with the help of our user-friendly app!

The Philly Food Rescue app:

  • Alerts users to nearby pick-ups
  • Allows users to select rescues
  • Directs users to pick up and drop off locations
  • Helps users log pick up contents and collect signatures from recipients
  • Allows direct communication with food recipients and Philly Food Rescue dispatchers

Share our curriculum with high schools near you to start food rescue clubs at their schools

Events / Outreach

Throughout the year, Philly Food Rescue has events like vending events and volunteer/non-profit gatherings, as well as opportunities to do off-site volunteer outreach. Volunteers can assist in hands-on event support (setup and breakdown, greeting guests, loading materials, etc.), or encourage others to volunteer and get involved with our program.


As a growing program, we can always use assistance in our office, from updating spreadsheets to sending thank-you notes to your partners or making phone calls. If interested in a regular administrative volunteer opportunity, we can train you in a more specialized task and/or project.

Tell us how you would like to get involved.
