Food Relief matches the food insecure with restaurant partners for a free meal, all covered by donor dollars.
About the Project
Across the country, food banks and other organizations in the food security system are seeing 20x normal demand. Millions of individuals are going hungry, while restaurants are struggling more than ever before.
Food Relief matches the food insecure with a free meal from a partner restaurant near them, all via texting. This system keeps restaurants alive (and their employees working), injects funds into the local community, and eases the burden food banks and the rest of the food security system are experiencing due to COVID-19.
We've already served over 20k meals in San Francisco and are rapidly expanding to other cities.
We launched in San Francisco 4 weeks ago and have already served 20k+ meals.
