an app: left-over food to the hungry

Feeding Forward, a not-for-profit service and phone app created by University of California, Berkeley young woman student Komal Ahmad, allows users to donate uneaten food from the a place of business or event to local homeless shelters.
The program first began at the university where Ahmad attended after being inspired by a homeless man and realized the excess food waste epidemic in America. It initially started out with donations of uneaten food from the university’s dining halls before it spread to more than 140 colleges around the country in as little as three years.
Then, in 2013, Ahmad “launched a phone app to encourage private companies and event planners to donate extra food,” according to the website,, creating the “not-for-profit service” that arranges food delivery directly to the areas and the people who need it most.
