• Diverting excess food to the hungry people since 2011

Find, Secure and Deliver Food

We are a non-profit enabling the exchange of excess food from the food industry to those who need it most

How It Works


Food is Donated

Farms, restaurants, cafeterias, hotels, stadiums, and grocery stores post excess food in under a minute on the Waste No Food app.


Food is Secured

Pre-vetted charities immediately get notified about food donations and can claim any donations they can use to serve hungry clients.


Food Is Picked Up

The charity, or a network of volunteers, picks up the food and serves it to hungry people.
