Foodbank and Y Waste join forces to make it easy to donate surplus meals to people doing it tough
A partnership between Foodbank and Y Waste is creating a whole new way for merchants to give end-of-day surplus meals to people facing hardship in your community.
How does it work?
A food merchant has perfectly good meals that they cannot sell and want to donate to someone in need. They put a notice on the Y Waste App.
A charity knows of someone who is in need of food assistance. It provides them with a special code to use in the Y Waste App.
The person downloads the Y Waste App onto their smartphone and registers using their special code so they can see the donated meals available in their area and claim one.
The person goes to the outlet during the time specified by the merchant and collects their meal by showing the receipt on their phone.
