This charity is trying to solve "the world's dumbest problem" by donating food to communities in need. Founded by Komal Ahmad, Feeding Forward addresses the 1 in 6 Americans who are hungry as well as the 365 million pounds of food being thrown out every day.

This organization is trying to fix distribution issues and help fight hunger by collecting leftover edible food and giving it to homeless shelters and food banks. Their mobile app lets them do this immediately and communities are helped in real-time.

Businesses with excess food can request pickup using the Feeding Forward platform. An on-demand driver recovers the leftovers and delivers them to a place nearby. Users can also see the impact by receiving profiles of the people they helped feed. Companies also save money by donating food and eliminating food waste in minutes.
