FoodStream, the first data-driven social network and equitable food distribution platform announced today a partnership with City Harvest’s Network Capacity Team. FoodStream’s technology provides its members, including food banks, community groups, urban farms, quick access to nourishing food, local resources and new pathways to donations and funding. It also identifies areas of surplus and redirects to pockets of need.
The partnership will unite, educate, and support productive relationships across more than 500 food banks within City Harvest’s Network serving thousands of food insecure New Yorkers and their families.
“We believe hunger in the U.S. is a solvable problem, and FoodStream’s technology will become an inexorable part of the fight against food insecurity,” said FoodStream Co-Founder Rich Cumming. “We are honored to participate in this program with City Harvest, helping to ensure families across the city and state have access to equitable healthy meals during these difficult times.
”City Harvest is New York City’s largest food rescue organization.”Our team is thrilled to introduce our agency network to FoodStream! This platform has great potential for improving their day-to-day operations as well as their ability to network with colleagues and donors. There is so much value in this networking site.” said City Harvest Network Capacity Manager Raffaella Glasser.
