Sharing Excess is a student-powered nonprofit that fights food insecurity by sharing food excess.


What we do:

Food Rescue


We partner with grocery stores and restaurants to deliver excess food to local hunger relief organizations.


Our work bridges the gap between excess and scarcity using the innovation, passion, and civic engagement of college students. We launch chapters that alleviate food insecurity both on campus and in the surrounding community.

Our food rescue team has delivered more than 100,000 LBS of food in the last 12 months.


That’s enough food to provide more than 80,000 meals for people in need. Our impact reaches across the entire city of Philadelphia; focused in areas with the greatest need.

Food Donors:


All of this is made possible by our amazing food donors. Together with our partners, we reduce their food waste, which saves them money and provides tax benefits in return for their in-kind contributions to our social impact.
