How  FOODCLOUD works: 

A store has perfectly good food that they cannot sell, in seconds, they upload a description of the food using their in-store scanner or our smartphone app.
A local charity linked to the store through our platform receives a notification letting them know food is available for collection. The charity responds accepting the food and they go and collect it.  Charities have access to a supply of fresh food and businesses can contribute to their community in a meaningful way.  Our partner charities, from breakfast clubs to homeless hostels to family support services, benefit through making savings on their food costs. This allows them to relocate their funding towards their core service and support their underlying mission.
