The city of Atlanta is home to more than 755,000 people, including 300,000 children and seniors, who live in food-insecure households. Every year, there are an estimated 33 million tons of good food wasted costing the nation roughly $1.3 billion in disposal fees.
Tech entrepreneur Jasmine Crowe wanted to do something about that. That’s where the Goodr app comes in. This real-time food-rescue app utilizes the shared economy to redirect surplus food to soup kitchens, shelters, nonprofits and churches for those in need. The Goodr app, created in Atlanta as part of a social-impact accelerator powered by Goodie Nation, has the potential to better fight hunger.
