If your business is looking for dependable, free, and locally-owned food waste solutions, we would love to work with you.

No Liability

The Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation act ensures no liability to the businesses the food comes from.

Save the Food takes every precaution to ensure that food goes from the store to the recipients in the safest way possible.


The process of donating food is extremely simple: just set aside food that is appropriate for donation in its designated area and a Save the Food food runner will come pick it up every day.


Our service is completely free to participating businesses! We accept monetary donations in lieu of a fee. All donations are tax deductible. We are a non-profit and entirely volunteer-based business.


From our donors to our recipients and through all the steps in between, Save the Food always strives to create positive connections in the Austin community. Show that your business supports hunger relief and community building by joining us now.
