Using our web-based app, we engage volunteers to transfer fresh food surpluses from local businesses to social service agencies serving the food insecure.

We Help The Environment

Currently, food waste is contributing 8 percent of total global greenhouse gas emissions. According to Project Drawdown, reducing food waste by 50% by 2050 would result in 26.2 gigatons of avoided CO2e.
