Food for All: Help, Save & Eat

In the United States, up to 40% of all food produced is wasted. If we combined all restaurants, cafeterias, fast food and caterers, they all together, throw away more than 43 billion pounds of food per year.  

Many studies agree that this is one of the biggest concerns of our generation:

"Food Foolish: The Hidden Connection Between Food Waste, Hunger and Climate Change" - John M. Mandyck & Eric B. Schultz

America Wastes $160 Billion in Food Every Year But Is Too Busy to Stop” - Bloomberg

Why wasting food is bad for the planet” - The Economist

Food Waste Is Becoming Serious Economic and Environmental Issue” - New York Times

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

   

The more people know about Food for All, the larger our community will become! We've made it easy, just hit one of the buttons below:

 

                       

 

  

 

  

 

 

  

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

Location: Food for All allows you to search for the closest restaurants that have available food for you. 

Pricing: Restaurants determine the pricing of each meal, between 50% and 80% cheaper than the original price. 

Pickup time: Restaurants determine the time frame when customers can pick up their meals. Usually around the business’ closing hours or at the end of each shift.

 

 

 

 

 

 

* 1 FFA meal is equivalent to approx. 3/4 lb and values approx. $6.25

Risks and challenges

1. Product/Market Fit - Building a platform beyond prototypes and beta tests means setting up an entire team of people working towards the same goal (technical and non-technical).

We are mitigating this risk by truly understanding the market needs and with mentorship from the Sustainable Technologies and Health program at the Harvard T.H Chan Center for Health and the Global Environment, where we are developing our first prototype, go-to-market strategy, and assessing the sustainability benefits of saving food.

2. We're creating a platform aiming to build social awareness regarding food waste. Different from other platforms, we allow people to make major social impact and are a mission oriented company that wants to change a cultural behavior - towards stop the increasing percentage of food waste in the U.S.A.

Everyone's cultural behavior is different, that's why Food for All will show to each person involved, through the use of deep analytics, the benefits that saving food brings to them.
