Our inspiration for Shifter derived from when one of our members mentioned that he worked at a restaurant. He saw firsthand how much food was being thrown out simply because it was not feasible to store or donate. It seemed so wasteful and harmful to the environment when there are people who are hungry right here in our city. We sought after a solution to all these issues.
What it does
Shifter provides a practical way for restaurants to donate their leftover food to local soup kitchens.
