Food Delivery Service DoorDash Is Using Its Network To Feed The Hungry And Reduce Waste

By

DoorDash is a technology company that wants to put its network of customers and restaurants to an even greater purpose. They've recently paired with Feeding America, a non-profit that helps supply food banks across the country and tens of thousands of programs dedicated to ending hunger. 

The result is several initiatives that both supply people with food and help eliminate restaurant waste. According to DoorDash, restaurants produce over 100,000 pounds of excess food every year, but only 1.4 percent of that excess is donated. There are a lot of reasons for this, but often the issue is coordination.
