Feeding America has made it easier for food banks in its network to take advantage of its MealConnect platform by making it automatically available in every zip code of the country.
“We connected all 200 food banks directly to MealConnect, so that we basically blanket the entire country with a food donation,” said Justin Block, Managing Director of Digital Platform Technology at Feeding America.
While the delivery service Shipt is a financial supporter of the newest version of MealConnect, along with General Mills, Google.org, Walmart Foundation and Cargill, it is not involved operationally in delivering food, Block said. MealConnect is available in the app store and continues to be free for all stakeholders.
