The Issue:

Restaurants and Community Based Organizations (CBOs) are the unsung heroes in helping feed those in need during the pandemic. This has opened the doors to integration of food aid through restaurants and the birth of a “social business model” supported by non-profit, government funding, and other cross-consumer subsidies. Many meal services are not available during weekends, are not culturally appropriate and do not allow for variety and choice. There is a gap in the food system and an opportunity to connect food insecure individuals with fresh, nutritious meals from local restaurants, while strengthening the resiliency of the food economy and emphasizing the dignity of all involved.

The Solution:

The Feed Forward “More than a Meal” program is a technology driven hybrid model through our partnership with providing network of partnerships that promotes an equitable food system via our symbiotic network of local restaurants and community based organizations (CBOs) to strengthen and to better direct food, health resources in underserved communities. Feed Forward has developed an easy-to-use technology that aligns food insecure individuals with hot restaurant meals. People simply register with a few pieces of information, and can select meals for pick up or delivery from a local restaurant. The program, More Than A Meal, allows for culturally appropriate options, availability of meals 7 days a week, and support of local restaurants.
