Group Profile

The Food Recovery Initiative utilizes a mobile app to simplify and streamline the Food Recovery process. The app creates a ‘virtual market place’ where organizations can post and claim donations. By connecting donors with excess food to those who need it, the hungry get fed, edible food isn’t wasted, and carbon emissions are reduced. Donors: Restaurants and other businesses with leftover food can post to the app, alerting nearby pantries and shelters of available food. Our system tracks and records all donations, and generates a yearly report to help you receive tax deductions for donations. Recipients: When a donor posts to the app, recipients will be alerted by push notification of the available food. If the recipient wishes to collect the food, they click ‘claim’ and send a driver to pick it up. Food pantries, shelters, and other registered 501.c3 organizations are eligible to become recipients.
