Amp Your Good has reinvented how food drives work with an online giving model called Crowd-feeding. Organizations use our crowd-feeding website to run their food drives. People who want to support a drive do it by purchasing the food they want to donate right at our website. We deliver the food for them directly to the food pantry, shelter or soup kitchen they are supporting. There’s no collection box so no chance of food donations spoiling.
And that means something radical – it means that instead of donating non-perishable food, people can donate perishable food – REAL Food – fruits and vegetables, whole meals and other healthy food. It means organizations can sponsor REAL Food drives with very specific goals – to raise organic food, locally grown produce, restaurant quality food and other types of REAL food. It also means that food drives can be used to support other good causes – things like local farming, reducing food waste or protecting the environment.
But most of all, it means that food drives can be used to ensure that people struggling with hunger get the food they really need. It’s a sad fact that the rates of diet related disease and conditions among the 50 Million people (US) facing hunger are astronomical – diabetes, obesity, heart disease and cancer are rampant. While there are many contributing factors, lack of access to healthy food is the biggest one. REAL Food Drives can help move the dial on this problem in a big way.
Traditional food drives have a long history and reflect the deep interest people have in helping those struggling with tough times. But, as they say, “The times, they are a-changin.” There is a huge shift in people’s food preferences towards healthier food coupled with incredibly fast growing demand of food that can be purchased online. We developed Crowd-feeding to leverage these trends for the benefit of those facing hunger. Crowd-feeding enables everyone to amplify their good intentions so that food drives and food donations can have the best impact.
Amp will deliver food to any hunger organization in the United States. People can donate from any where in the world.
