Startup Showcase: Foodshare – The App to Share Excess Food and Reduce Waste

Making an impact in reducing food waste and world hunger, one shared meal at a time

In a world of abundance, it’s shocking to know that one-third of the food produced in the world is wasted each year. At the same time, millions of people around the world face hunger and starvation. In the UK alone, nearly 10 million tonnes of food is wasted each year, with a large portion of it being perfectly edible. Foodshare is a UK-based mobile app startup that seeks to solve this problem by enabling users to share excess food with others who need it, thereby reducing food waste and helping those in need.

How Foodshare Works

Foodshare is a simple, easy-to-use mobile application that connects individuals, businesses, and organisations to facilitate the sharing of excess food. Users can post about food that could potentially go to waste, such as excess vegetables or bread from bakeries, even expired food from local shops. Non-food items can also be posted on the app, including items that can be borrowed. All a user has to do is take a picture, add a description, and specify when and where the product will be available for pick-up.

The app also has a ‘Wanted’ section where users can post about items they need, such as food, housing, or other necessities. To organise the viewing of a listing, users can select the item they need, make a request and appointment via private messaging, and voila, they can access free food and items without wasting resources.

Foodshare aims to eliminate the need for individuals to throw away perfectly good food while helping others in the process. By making it easy to share food and other items, the app can help reduce the carbon footprint of communities, enabling businesses to minimise their waste, and providing a way for people to support each other.

Foodshare is an excellent example of how technology can be used to create a better and more sustainable future. With the app, users can share their excess food and other items with people who need them, thereby reducing waste and contributing to a better world. As food waste continues to be a significant problem worldwide, initiatives like Foodshare will go a long way in reducing waste and feeding those who need it most.

Foodshare app is available on both the App Store and Google Play, and its website provides a platform for its community to interact and make an impact in reducing food waste and world hunger.
