Feeding South Florida is proud to re-launch its “Extra Helpings Program”, using the innovative food rescue app, MealConnect™. Created by Google for Feeding America food banks, with support from the General Mills and Walmart Foundation, MealConnect revolutionizes and seamlessly automates the way prepared food is rescued and distributed.
We are hosting an introductory meeting to roll-out our Extra Helpings program and preview this powerful technology platform.
Who should attend this introductory meeting:
– Any large hotel, restaurant, mall, event center or culinary mecca looking to donate food.
– Willing and able volunteers who can pick-up and deliver food to vetted recipient sites.
– Any interested community member in learning more about the program and app!
This meeting immediately follows our “Summer Hunger Ends Here” Community Partner Breakfast, honoring our Partner Agency of the Year, Volunteer of the Year, Advocate of the Year and our “Feed Your Creativity” Art Competition winners. The breakfast starts at 8:30 at the same location and is only $20. Proceeds from the breakfast help support our food rescue program so please consider attending the breakfast and then stay for the meeting!
Throughout the year, Feeding South Florida hosts or is the recipient of proceeds from events hosted by community partners who support our mission to to end hunger in South Florida by providing immediate access to nutritious food, leading hunger and poverty advocacy efforts, and transforming lives through innovative programming and education.
Participation in these events, whether it be via business sponsorship or the purchase of individual tickets, not only provides funds to help end hunger, but also shows support and creates awareness for this ever important issue. It’s just another way community members can help their neighbors in need.View our calendar of events, or, even better, register to receive our electronic newsletter at the footer of this website and never miss the latest information on our upcoming community events.
