530 Food Rescue Coalition

Preventing Good Food From Going to Waste

530 Food Rescue Coalition is a new program in Butte County working to save excess food. For example, when a catered event or a grocery store has leftover food, our volunteers pick it up and drop it off at local non-profit organizations that provide services for unhoused individuals, low-income residents, and others that are working to feed hungry families. We are working to provide these partners with fresh food to relieve hunger in Butte County. Contact us at info@530FRC.org for more information.

We Fight Food Waste
40% of food is wasted.

We Support Our Community
1 in 5 people are food insecure in Butte County.

We Protect the Environment
Decomposing food in landfills emits methane gas that harms our environment.

Our Solution

Technology

Our easy-to-install 530 Food Rescue app will mobilize volunteers at the touch of a screen. Through the app, volunteer drivers are alerted when surplus food is available to be picked up near them.  Powered by Food Rescue Hero
