While over 40% of food in the United States is thrown out, 1 in 8 Americans face food insecurity. Restaurants, grocery stores, and caterers that are trying to donate their excess food are faced with a serious challenge: in our study of thousands of online emergency food provider listings, we found about 70% of phone numbers were either disconnected or incorrect. Donating food is significantly harder than throwing it away, so thousands of people remain hungry while food fills landfills across the country.
MEANS aims to solve that problem. Our online food donation platform makes it quicker, easier, and cheaper to donate unsold food than it is to throw it out. But we can't do this work without your support. Your support helps our team expand our reach, build new features, and rescue more food.
