Transfernation is a 501(c)3 non-profit which leverages technology to ensure that extra food from events goes to supporting communities in need. To date we have rescued over 10,000 pounds of food from events across NYC including corporate luncheons, galas, and conferences.
Recently Transfernation released a new app platform in collaboration with SocialEffort which operates like "Uber for Food Rescue". Our app enables real time food rescue by allowing event planners to send out push notifications to volunteers based on location, proximity, and interest. If you download the app here and register as a Transfernation volunteer you can find easy ways to give back to your community and make a real impact.
