Food Recovery. Simplified.

Central Illinois Foodbank received a $51,000 Middle Mile grant from the Walmart Foundation to develop solutions to effectively transport unused food from local food donors to partner agencies, such as food pantries and soup kitchens. The Foodbank will leverage MealConnect, Feeding America's food donation app, to automate the rescue and distribution of unused perishable food items in a sustainable, cost-effective way. Feeding America developed MealConnect to provide donors a convenient, free and safe way to reduce waste and connect surplus food with people who face hunger.
