Ending hunger and food waste within our lifetimes.

Our Mission

Feeding Forward connects businesses with excess edible food to feed those in need, instantly.

Our platform uses technology to streamline the process of food recovery and distribution, giving businesses and organizations the power to fight hunger and food waste within minutes.

We are currently feeding people in the San Francisco Bay Area!

Over 502,119 pounds of food recovered so far.

The Issue

1 in 6 Americans do not know where their next meal will come from, while 365 million pounds of edible food are thrown away every day.

The Solution

Our software platform and algorithm, supported by a network of drivers, delivers excess food where and when it's needed most.

How It Works

Request

Use our iPhone App or website to request a food pick-up when your business or organization has leftovers.

Deliver

Our algorithm instantly matches your excess food to a nearby recipient agency (like a homeless shelter), based on their needs, as well as an on-demand driver who picks up and delivers the food. All parties are notified and updated in real-time.

Receive

Agency receives food and takes photos of the people fed. Food providers are sent these photos, showing them the impact they made by ‘Feeding Forward’.
