Food Cloud - Ireland
FoodCloud is a super innovative virtual foodbank that connects businesses that have too much food with charities that have too little.
We do this with the use of a snazzy app, legal contracts (to make sure everyone follows all the food safety rules), and network of businesses and charities willing to restore some of that old Irish community spirit based on shared food.
FoodCloud provides the opportunity for businesses and charities within communities to work together to solve the social and environmental problems associated with food waste and food poverty. Since launching in 2013, Food Cloud has facilitated the redistribution of 112 tonnes of food - that equates to a whopping 246,400 meals and emissions savings of 358,400 kg of CO2!
