I work at a food pantry outside of New Orleans through a program called the Digital Arts Service Corps (basically AmeriCorps for geeks). I wanted to make an easy, fun way to help fund hunger organizations - and this website was the result. If you have any questions, ideas, or criticisms feel free to send me an email. Thanks!
Where does my donation go exactly?
Every month we choose a different hunger charity to donate to and 100% of all donations go towards that charity.
Does the Nonprofit actually buy the food I select?
No, the food on this website is symbolic. The nonprofit itself probably has a better idea of what food is needed at a certain time, so the donation is made as a lump sum.
Where did you get the food prices?
Most hunger organizations buy discounted surplus food from wholesalers, and these prices reflect that.
