Alleviating hunger and preventing waste in San Francisco

Our volunteers relay food for over 20,000 meals in San Francisco each week

Whether it is called Food Waste, Food Rescue, or Food Recovery,
Food Runners is a leader in the effort to keep edible food from being discarded.

Food Runners picks up excess perishable and prepared food from businesses such as restaurants, caterers, bakeries, hospitals, event planners, corporate cafeterias, and hotels and delivers it directly to neighborhood food programs.

You can donate food by emailing us at
