Profile 21 : GoodR
Goodr is a sustainable surplus food management platform that leverages technology to reduce food waste and combat hunger. The company views hunger as a logistics issue and not a scarcity challenge.
“Powered by blockchain technology, Goodr provides a secure ledger that tracks an organization’s surplus food waste from pickup to donation, delivering the competitive advantage of real-time social impact reporting analytics. Goodr is the only food waste management company that is in compliance with the IRS through a blockchain-enabled platform and mobile app that empowers organizations to unlock signiﬁcant tax deductions by donating surplus food that ends up in landﬁlls, ultimately contributing to the environmental crisis.”
Founder Story Nugget
“What I remember most about that day, was this bright light, shining in my eyes, from this empty refrigerator. This is the day that hunger became deeply personal to me. I was shocked that one of my friends – someone who had defied all the odds – was the face of hunger. Savannah was college-educated, well-traveled, had led a successful career, and married the love of her life. She simply fell on hard times.”
