Retail Pickup

We wanted to take this opportunity to develop a campaign to shock the public with the enormous scale of food waste, and educate supporters about how food rescue can help solve the hunger crisis.

Grocers, restaurants and retailers can ensure surplus and close-to-code food ends up in the hands of those who need it the most, instead of in the trash. Through Retail Pickup, we collect dry, refrigerated, and frozen products from your company and provide it to our neighbors in need. Each year, with your help, we provide more than 4.3 million meals through Retail Pickup.

We also accept donations from companies of non-food, personal care items such as shampoo and toothpaste, along with household items like paper goods and cleaning supplies.
