Project: Food Connect

Founded by Megha Kulshreshtha Food Connect links homeless shelters to restaurants looking to donate their leftover food. The app allows donors to give surplus food to local shelters and community organizations. Recently used by the Democratic National Convention, Food Connect has worked in partnership with most of the major anti-hunger organizations in Philadelphia, including Philabundance, the Mayor’s Office of Community Empowerment and Opportunity, the Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger, the Philadelphia Food Policy Advisory Council and SHARE Food Program.
