Since 2011, Community Plates, has helped lead the food rescue movement across the nation. To better reflect who they are and where they’re heading, Community Plates has changed its name and is now Food Rescue US.

Food rescuers at Community Plates have delivered more than 15 million fresh and healthy meals to people who don’t have enough to eat. They recently launched a new app—available for download now in the iOS store—that will make food rescue simple and seamless wherever volunteers and places are.

Interested community members can support Food Rescue US on Fairfield County Giving Day, March 9. ( This one-day effort by Fairfield County’s Community Foundation inspires and empowers the community to make a difference through 24 hours of collective generosity. Last year, over $1.2 million was raised to support local causes.
