Unsung is a non-profit whose goal is to end hunger in America by leveraging the ‘sharing economy’.
Food isn’t something most Americans think about because for most, food is over abundant.
It’s surprising to hear that over 49 million Americans live with food insecurity (meaning these people don’t know where their next meal is coming from). Meanwhile, Americans throw 500 billion dollars of food each year!
UNSUNG is leveraging the sharing economy to solve this hunger problem. With the unsung app, if you’re a restaurant or a catering service or you just have extra food, log on to their app, describe the food you have available, and it will be picked up and delivered to the needy (you’ll get a tax deduction, and save money on your garbage bill, too.
Every meal donated can be seen on their Live Feed. People can view the good deeds being done in their community in real time transparently. Leaderboards and badges show you the most active unsung heroes in your community.
UNSUNG is growing rapidly and has been growing 10% WEEKLY in 2016.
In 2016, Unsung has delivered over 12,000 meals to people in need.
