Become a Rescue Runner Partner Today! 

The Second Harvest Rescue Runner Program picks up extra food and prepared meals from local restaurants, caterers, and anyone working in the food service industry.

If your business has extra food at the end of the work day, we can help! Using our digital app, you will be able to alert our volunteers that food needs to be picked up. Our team will pick up the meals and deliver them to one of our nearby food pantries.

Why your business should be a Rescue Runner Partner: 

  • There is no cost for you to participate.
  • Flexibility: Our volunteers can pick up outside of regular business hours.
  • There is zero liability: Food donors are protected by federal and state Good Samaritan laws.
  • Reduced waste: You’ll help keep perfectly healthy meals out of landfills.
  • Community support: Your donations will help our mission to fight hunger across our community.
