OUR STRATEGY

Moving food where it’s needed.

EastWest Food Rescue acquires or purchases surplus food predominantly from farmers and distributes it with empathy to people experiencing food insecurity. We coordinate every step from finding new sources of nutritious surplus food to organizing transportation to ensuring rescued food is given to people with food insecurity for free. We support the farming community and work towards sustainable solutions for the food system.

OUR STORY

EastWest Food Rescue started from a Facebook post trying to rescue 1 ton of crops to distribute to food banks. In the first 15 days, we rescued 217 tons of food and we aren’t going to slow down anytime soon!
