FoodCloud is a 2016 Global Urban Innovator showcased at the New Cities Summit in Montréal, Canada.
In cities across the world, food businesses frequently have food surpluses while charities struggle to provide food for those who need it most. Globally, 1.3 billion tonnes of food is wasted annually while one in seven people don’t have enough to eat. FoodCloud is a social enterprise that has developed a unique, technological platform that connects businesses with surplus food with charities in their local community that need it. To date, FoodCloud has redistributed the equivalent of over two million meals to charities in Ireland and the U.K.
The Global Urban Innovators is the first global innovation startup program to tackle the biggest urban challenges of our time by supporting and promoting the 10 most innovative startups and social enterprises that use technology to solve pressing issues in cities.http://bit.ly/URBInnovate
