Building on the Success of its Food Rescue App, I-Rescue, Table to Table, Expands Beyond Bergen County to Include Essex, Hudson, and Passaic Counties Beginning May 16th

Table to Table Expands I-Rescue Food Rescue App to Three New Counties in New Jersey

Hasbrouck Heights, NJ – Table to Table, New Jersey’s first food rescue organization, is expanding its I-Rescue app beyond Bergen County to include Essex, Hudson, and Passaic counties. The expansion aims to alleviate food insecurity by connecting volunteers to recipient agencies such as food pantries and shelters that feed communities in need. The roll-out of I-Rescue will begin in Wayne and Clifton (Passaic County), followed by Montclair (Essex County), and then Hoboken and Jersey City (Hudson County).

I-Rescue is available on iOS and Google Play, and interested individuals can download the app or learn more about volunteering by visiting https://tabletotable.org/i-rescue/. The app’s design is perfect for participation during the current times, as minimal direct contact is required, and it is simple to use and infinitely flexible based on someone’s availability or location.

Table to Table’s I-Rescue expansion into the new counties is made possible by a generous anonymous donor, Blue Cross/Blue Shield of New Jersey, and Konica Minolta. To help Table to Table in their mission to eliminate food insecurity in Northern New Jersey, interested parties can donate through their website. Corporate partners are also welcome to support the organization’s cause by clicking here or emailing Eda Tekeoglu.

Table to Table is committed to feeding Northern New Jersey’s hungry neighbors by rescuing and delivering healthy, fresh, and perishable food from grocery stores, food distributors, and restaurants. In partnership with hundreds of recipient organizations, such as food pantries, senior centers, and school programs, Table to Table supports health and wellness for all. Since its inception in 1999, Table to Table has rescued and delivered the equivalent of 295 million meals and saved nearly 96,000 tons of potentially wasted food from landfills. Through its I-Rescue app, Table to Table has expanded its distribution footprint to include donations that serve smaller donors and recipient organizations. Independently funded through grants and donations, Table to Table is proud of its Charity Navigator 4-Star Rating for 12 consecutive years. Learn more by visiting https://tabletotable.org/.
