Food Connect uses technology and a collaborative approach to help retailers to donate surplus food while streamlining the process for delivering that food to emergency food providers. The organization bridges the gap between surplus food and hunger to reduce redundancies and allow real-time collaboration to efficiently recover surplus food. Instead of recreating the wheel, Food Connect supports existing recovery systems and fills in the gaps where necessary. It aims to create a seamless donor experience, a real-time collaborative effort across partners, and safe and dignified meals for food-insecure populations in the Philadelphia region and beyond.
