The premise is simple…

Identifying where there is extra food and finding where there is need. We want to simplify the giving process to the point where it doesn't force people to make time, resources, or financial sacrifices.


Bridging the information gap…

Finding someone to take your extra food is time consuming and transporting it to them requires resources and effort. As a result, pounds of food end up in the garbage and 49.1 million Americans continue to live in households that are food insecure. It doesn't make sense to allow this good, edible food to be thrown away just because we cannot locate people to take it.


The solution…

Food waste is a logistics problem. Our iOS connects those with extra food to those who need it. We connect existing infrastructures: people with extra food, our base of independently contracted drivers and volunteers and local homeless shelters, soup kitchens & church feeding programs, usually less than half a mile away. We combat waste culture by utilizing what we already have instead of investing in what we can't afford. We already have everything we need to end hunger in our city.
