What is Food Rescue
A food rescue organisation basically acts as the middle man between the food industry (i.e. food retailers,
wholesalers or growers) and existing local community organisations or local charities (e.g. food banks) that are
already helping out those in need.

THIS IS HOW A TYPICAL FOOD RESCUE OPERATION WORKS

1. Satisfy volunteers make a scheduled pick up of surplus produce from a food donor

2. Satisfy volunteers deliver food to Satisfy premises.

3. Food is weighed and recorded against food donor and food type (e.g. fruit & vegetables, bread products).

4. Food is inspected and sorted and any food that meets Satisfy’s food waste criteria is put aside. Food
    waste is disposed of to compost or animal feed.

5. Food that is acceptable for donation is weighed and recorded against the recipient organisation it is
    scheduled to go to.

6. Food is stored safely and appropriately (i.e. on shelves or in fridge or freezer) until food is picked up or
    delivered to recipient charity

7. Pick up or drop off of food to recipient organisation happens later that same day or the following day.
