34 Million people are food insecure. We could feed everyone with the food we throw away.
108 billion pounds of food is thrown away every year. Food waste contributes 10% of global GHG emissions.
Efficiently matching and routing surplus food to organizations that can use it to feed neighbors in need is complex. Nonprofits relying on volunteers can't always meet the needs of food donors.

Liability & CA Terms
Every food donation is protected by the Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Act, which prevents donors from being liable for their food donations, as long as they donate in good faith.
California businesses receive additional protections from the statewide Good Samaritan Act.
Many California businesses are now or will soon be required to donate their excess edible food. elePlate keeps these businesses in compliance with state and local laws. Contact us for more information.
