Share your Extra Meal Portions with the Less Fortunate


Every community has people who are hungry and don't have the means to enjoy a fresh home cooked meal. We see them on the streets and we aren't prepared with food that we can give them.

Why don't we plan to create extra meal portions on certain days to give away to the people that are hungry in our community.

    Do you plan on working with homeless shelters to bring extra meal portions to the community? Would love to know how you're facilitating that process. Seems interesting- but I just wonder about the delivery process.

      Hi Alessandra,

      Yes, we would identify organizations that serve meals to the homeless and work with them. In our community, we have a shelter that serves over 450 meals to the homeless from donated ingredients. We hope to have enough traction in a community that we would be able to fulfil the order size with fresh, home cooked meals on a regular basis.

      It will depend on the shelter in terms of what would work for them. If they are willing to take partial orders i.e. 20 meal portions then we could start right away. And if they would want entire orders then we can pick a day of the week and designate it as the fulfilment day and have the community make extra portions for donations only on that day. And then add more days as we add more people on the system.

      We would look at delivery drivers from within the community and within the shelter that would help pick up the meals. As an example, if the average donated meal portions is 4 and the delivery driver can do an average of 10 stops in an hour (armed with optimized driving directions for a small community), we'd have 40 meal portions per driver and 11 drivers picking up the meals for 450 meals approximately. We could also have the people living close by volunteer and drop off the meals too. It would depend on the specific community and the motivated people within it.

      We would work out the kinks as we do more and more of these and figure out what works best ... but we have to start somewhere :)
