I just discovered Transfernation - you use the app to request a pickup for untouched extra food. They then take it off your hands and deliver to your local soup kitchen, making sure all excess edible food will go towards their feeding program. They handle the matching, the physical transportation of the food, collecting impact data, and processing your Enhanced Tax Deduction. Pretty cool! 

Also - Goodr - an Atlanta-based startup providing a secure ledger that tracks an organization’s surplus food from pickup to donation, delivering real-time social and environmental impact reporting analytics. The Goodr model aims to provide a triple-win solution by improving an organization’s bottom line through charitable tax donations, reducing its greenhouse emissions from landfills and getting its edible surplus food to local communities in need.

Anyone try either of these apps? 

Code for America is a non-partisan, non-political 501 organization founded in 2009 to address the widening gap between the public and private sectors in their effective use of technology and design. According to its website, the organization works to improve government services for all, starting with those who need them most.

The CalFresh Program, federally known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), issues monthly electronic benefits that can be used to buy most foods at many markets and food stores. 

Code for America built GetCalFresh to make the online experience of applying for CalFresh an easier one. Instead of clicking through endless, complicated screens from a desktop computer for the better part of an hour, clients can answer questions via their smartphone and submit an application in under 10 minutes. GetCalFresh also has a dedicated client success team that supports clients though the process in three languages. They answer questions and address concerns, and then elevate what they hear from clients to other team members so they can make continuous improvements to the application experience.

Here's an earlier thread about this effort

Hack4Impact is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization founded at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, with chapters at various colleges across the United States. Hack4Impact collaborates with nonprofits and other socially responsible organizations to develop software that meets important social and humanitarian needs. 

Hack4Impact's mission is to help nonprofits expand their reach and impact through technology.

An example of a project developed by Hack4Impact: Philly Food Finder. The rate of food insecurity in Philadelphia County is 22%. We worked with the Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger to create a mapping tool to increase the visibility and usage of existing resources, such as food pantries, soup kitchens, and senior meal centers. Individuals can enter their ZIP code and immediately find food help that is close by.

Here's an earlier TechSoup thread about Hack4Impact

Back in 2013, someone posted to the TechSoup community looking for a recommendation for a food bank database management system. It's been updated a few times since then, the last time in 2017. 

The original post said:

Our food bank serves over 200 individuals and families twice a month and we report our statistics to two different organizations. Right now a lot of data is entered manually, and unless and until we have some kind of electronic check-in, that will remain unchanged. So I don't need something fancy where the recipient swipes a card with a magnetic strip or anything like that.  But for our reports, I need a program that will allow me to show a breakdown by age, sex, ethnicity, number of disabled, veterans, new households, etc. All this information we gather manually as people check-in. 

Food banks are welcomed to post here and say what software they are using to manage their inventory, work flow, etc., or any apps they recommend their clients use. 

During the summer, millions of youth eligible for free and reduced meals lose the place -- school cafeterias -- where they ate lunch. These meals move from cafeterias to community based organizations across the country, making them harder to find. Range is a mobile app for trusted adults who work with youth to use to quickly find the nearest place where free meals are served and where youth can find a free place--a library--to engage in information and programs. It is available for Android and iOS. It is promoted by Caravan Studios.

more about Range.

The data that powers Range is organized and published by Socrata.

Range was developed by JayStack

and FTW Group.

The developers received inspiration, feedback and moral support from:

Data is made available through a collaboration with the USDA. We store the data on Socrata so that we can use it in the app but also so that it can be available via an API to other developers. We'd love it if someone played with the food data or the library data. Map it against transit lines or against food deserts or against statistics about crimes against the person to keep creating useful tools. What insights can we gather when we start combining this data with knowledge we know about our communities?

Foodtank wrote a great article on both Transfernation and Goodr a couple of years ago.  They also discuss fourteen other apps/sites that can help redistribute unused food.
