Feeding Forward utilizes the speed, accessibility and convenience of mobile applications to curb hunger and reduce waste by encouraging and enabling donors with excess food to post their donations through Feeding Forward’s online & mobile platforms. Those with excess food can post donations to Feeding Forward’s virtual marketplace by answering 3 simple questions: 1) What kind of food are you donating? 2) How much of it do you have? 3) When does it need to be picked up by? The platform automatically detects your location. Our unique algorithm allows your donation amount and type to be matched in real-time to nearby charities, food banks, or other human services agencies in need. On-demand volunteers are alerted to pick up and deliver the food. Recipient agencies then send “thank-you” messages to donors, along with photos of people who were fed, allowing donors to see the impact they made by spending 2 minutes of their time ‘Feeding Forward’.
