There is a fundamental absurdity in our food system: 35% of the food we produce in the U.S. is thrown away, yet an estimated 42 million Americans struggle with hunger. We are leading the charge to change this broken system. Support our initiative, your Donations HELP!
Our Food Rescue To Go! Program: allows us to deliver our rescued food supplies to families facing food insecurity within a 10 Mile radius of our Baltimore City warehouse. This program is Completely FREE for individuals or families facing food insecurity. At 4MyCiTy our focus is on healthy foods, so most of what's delivered are Fruits & Vegetables with random grocery and snack items sprinkled in occasionally. This programs allows us to reduce food waste, address hunger within the communities and create a consistent stream of supplemental income for the local community through pay as a Delivery Dasher.

Since inception in October of 2018, 4MyCiTy has diverted over 180 Million pounds of edible foods and over 35 Million pounds of organic waste totaling just over 215 Million pounds of potential organic waste from reaching landfills. When measured as a Greenhouse gas, that equals to 94,686 Metric tons of avoided CO2e ( carbon dioxide equivalent) emissions. In comparison to vehicles/cars, that's approximately 245,300 cars taken off the roads. This is our true measure of success.
