Tech That Feeds

Residents in need have received more than 2 million pounds of donated food through Saddle Brook-based Table to Table’s I-Rescue app. The nonprofit group, which “rescues” fresh food that would’ve been discarded by restaurants and stores, launched the smartphone app about two years ago to connect volunteers with participating businesses. With the tech on their phones, delivery volunteers can keep tabs on available food rescues- notifications offer restaurant locations, pick-up times windows, and donation destinations, among other info. Food is typically delivered to food pantries or group homes throughout New Jersey.

“Table to Table I-Rescue has gone from just a kernel of an idea two years ago to a major food source for feeding our hungry New Jerseyans today,” says Julie Kinner, Vice President of Operations at Table to Table. Find out how to volunteer at
