Feeding San Diego is ending hunger by maximizing food rescue. Join us!
1 in 8 people in San Diego County face hunger, while 40% of all food produced is wasted. MealConnectTM is a free platform that makes it easy to connect excess food from donors such as restaurants, caterers, hotels, meeting and event planners, and convenience stores to local agencies that serve people facing hunger.
Food donors can submit a donation through the MealConnectTM platform and when approved by Feeding San Diego, a volunteer will pick up the donation and deliver it to a local agency. It’s free, easy, safe and good for business and the community!
FOOD DONATION PROCESS
Volunteer as a MealConnect Driver. You will receive food safety training and access to equipment to safely transport food. The MealConnect App will alert you when a pick-up is available from a donor location. You can then pick-up the donation and drop off food at a community partner location designated by Feeding San Diego.
MealConnect is available to donors from any smartphone, tablet or computer to make an immediate impact in the communities where they operate. MealConnect is free for all users and all donations are tax-deductible. Feeding San Diego maintains stringent food-safety standards to ensure food is handled safely by their volunteers and partners.
