Food donation applications?


#1

Are any brigades connected to any active efforts around helping restaurants/caterers/facilities donate surplus food? I’m talking to a nonprofit in Philly that’s doing this and advocating moving towards an open-source approach. I came across a lot of projects on github that look similar but it’s not clear anything is attached to an org that’s actually moving food like they are. If anyone is actively doing this I’d love to get connected and see what possibilities there might be for converging the software for multiple orgs into a shared open-source codebase

I did a bunch of background research on the general space of food recovery (aka gleaning). It’s pending review for publication, so I can’t share the paper until later this year, but I’m happy to discuss it privately for now.
