One in four children in New York City go hungry each day. While many city dwellers take for granted being able to order-in food a few times a week, there’s a way to help the less fortunate from the comfort of your home.
Sharebite, a food delivery ordering app, has partnered with NYC food charity non-profit City Harvest to give meals to children in need. “It’s a one-to-one model,” Sharebite CEO Mohsin Memon says. Because City Harvest uses leftover cuisine from restaurants and grocery stores, it’s able to keep the cost of its donated meals low — about 23 cents each. When ordering with Sharebite, 2% of the order is donated to City Harvest (users don’t cover donation costs).
