FoodShare is an iPhone application where users go to one of our partnered restaurants, take a picture of their food, and we donate a meal to someone in need through Operation Food Search. Users can also refer their friends to the restaurant and share their experience to Facebook for an additional donated meal!
FoodShare CEO Andrew Glantz will be sharing the journey of FoodShare so far and the direction of the company for the future.
