Become a Food Rescue Hero
The Philly Food Rescue app is volunteer-facing. Our in-app donations already have a home, and they need a ride. Our app:
- Alerts volunteers to available one-time or weekly rescues.
- Allows users to claim local rescues.
- Directs volunteers to designated donors pick-up and recipient drop-off locations.
- Helps users log donation kinds and amounts for record keeping.
- Allows direct communication with recipients and Philly Food Rescue dispatchers.

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.
