Volunteer-Based Food Rescue App Celebrates Major Milestone of 2 Million Pounds of Food Picked Up and Delivered to Neighbors in Need

Saddle Brook, NJ, December 21, 2023 –Table to Table, New Jersey’s first food rescue organization, celebrates a major milestone of 2 million pounds of food delivered to hungry neighbors via its volunteer-based food rescue app, Table to Table I-Rescue. In just a little over two years, volunteers using the app have collected free, fresh, and donated food from restaurants and grocery stores and delivered that food to recipient agencies such as food pantries and shelters that feed communities in need throughout Bergen, Essex, Hudson, and Passaic Counties. Powered by Food Rescue Hero, the app is available on iOS and Google Play. To download Table to Table I-Rescue, volunteer, or learn more, visit: https://tabletotable.org/i-rescue/

“We are not only proud but grateful! Afterall, Table to Table I-Rescue has gone from just a kernel of an idea two years ago to being a major source for feeding our hungry New Jerseyans today,” says Julie Kinner, VP of Operations for Table to Table. “Because the app is intuitive and flexible, it is the trifecta of food insecurity tools. It is embraced by an amazing community of volunteers, generous food donors, and very appreciative recipient partners,” Kinner concluded.
