Technology Meets Food Rescue


Guest Blogger Karli Wood

If you're already composting, you know the immense amount of food that can go to waste. Thanks to ever-evolving technology, you can now make an even bigger impact on wasted food, often from the comfort of your own home.

Take a look at these three apps that are changing the game when it comes to reducing wasted food, rescuing food, and feeding people.


USDA FoodKeeper - This app offers multiple tools to reduce the food you waste in your home. Considering the fact that the average American family wastes approximately $1500 a year in uneaten food, you'll be saving money and resources. With food storage guides, cooking tips, and more, you'll be a pro in no time.

Olio - Picking up steam in the US, this app connects community members who have surplus food. Did you grow too many tomatoes? Post them on Olio and rejoice as your neighbors claim them for their summer dishes.



Food Rescue US - This app connects food donors with volunteers who transfer surplus food to community kitchens and food pantries. If you volunteer to transfer food, you are directly participating in feeding hungry neighbors!



While there are many similar apps on the market currently, these three are available and ready-to-use in Cincinnati and the surrounding areas. So, what are you waiting for? Download them today and expand your food rescue horizons.
