On-demand App for Leftover Food Donation
USA – ikened to an Uber for food rescue, Transfernation’s app links available volunteers with corporate events wanting to donated leftover food. Realizing that obstacles to feeding the hungry are more often logistical than a lack of willingness, Transfernation‘s founders solved one of the main problems in reducing food waste – they’re making donating food no more difficult than throwing it away. Companies wanting to give away leftovers often don’t know where to take it and how to get it there. Now, event planners only have to log a few details with the app. When a registered event is nearing conclusion, notifications are sent out to potential volunteers. Whoever is available then manages the pickup, transport and delivery of the leftover food to nearby shelters and food banks.
