About Us

Food Rescue of Northwest Michigan is the area’s mobile food rescue organization.

With our own refrigerated trucks along with our trained and dedicated drivers and volunteers to coordinate the effort, we make scheduled pick-ups and deliveries from food donor to recipient locations throughout the Five County area.


Every financial contributor—from young students collecting coins in their classroom to major corporate and foundation funders — wants to be sure that their donation is making a difference.

Currently, based on our efficient operating model, for every dollar donated, we are able to provide 5 meals.
