Love the Organization / HATE the updated app


The updated app is worthless. I can’t take on new routes because I haven’t closed previous routes. But the app won’t allow me to close any previous routes. The list of previous routes should be sorted by recent to past, but the app shows the oldest ones first and it takes forever to scroll through the list. (I gave up after 10 minutes!)

I also have an adopted route (since the beginning) but the app says I have no drop-offs scheduled.

Badges aren’t important to me. It’s fun to see how many runs total I’ve done, but I do not need a “reward” for it.

I’ve always thought the rating system is a little silly. Am I rating the restaurant, myself, how much food, etc. There’s no clear direction here. I would recommend clarifying this more. If you want us to rate the experience, we should be able to rate the restaurant/store (cleanliness, maybe amount of food above/below normal, etc.) Or give us a space to comment on the experience as needed. (The one restaurant I adopted seems to gone down in quality, and on days makes me wonder about the hygienic quality of the food.)

As for the scheduled routes, I’d love it if a user could filter the list to “today’s routes” only. This would be a great way to fill an immediate need for you when we have time right now to take care of it.

Great organization


I volunteer every week for this organization and find the app to be very user friendly. I can search for open runs. I can update my schedule and cancel when I can't make my scheduled run. I get an email reminding me to "close out" my run when I'm done each week. Easy as pie!

Food Rescue - great cause


Make a difference by reducing the amount of food food that is wasted and get food to people in our community that need it. App makes it easy to manage food runs. The feature to add a run automatically to your calendar works better online than it does from the App but otherwise easy to manage on the go.
