Mission

Peninsula Food Runners is a volunteer organization dedicated to alleviating hunger and reducing food waste in the San Mateo and Santa Clara counties.

Peninsula Food Runners provides a free service to pick up excess perishable and prepared food from donors such as restaurants, caterers, bakeries, hospitals, event planners, corporate cafeterias, and hotels. Our volunteers pick up food from these businesses and deliver it directly to shelters and neighborhood programs and 100% affordable housing that feed the hungry and the provide a relief to food insecurities.

Powered by a web application, donors submit an online request for a food pickup. The application makes an automated match between a recipient and donor within seconds (The match is based on a set of criteria that include location, need, food type and hours of operation). Once the match is made by the application, an auto-generated email message and text message is sent to our pool of volunteer runners. The first available runner gets assigned and completes the food run. From the time the donor submits an online request for a food pickup, the recipient and volunteer are assigned within a few minutes. The actual food run is usually completed within an hour. A smartphone app will also be available soon.
