Last Mile Food Rescue

Last Mile Food Rescue’s unique model of civic engagement, addressing food insecurity, will help galvanize the Cincinnati Regional Chamber and local member-businesses’ efforts to help close the hunger gap while simultaneously reducing landfill waste. Unlike technology companies that focus solely on an app as the solution, they focus on the human side of the solution – the volunteers who give their time to help others – and the businesses that encourage these efforts. Additionally, they help companies properly document and calculate their earned tax deduction to offset the cost of their donation efforts. Their mission is to increase the volume of available food by eliminating the barriers that prevent corporate participation, stimulate employee volunteerism to aid in the short-distance transport of small quantity donations.
