MeshX is a marketplace for surplus food. Currently it's easier and cheaper for companies to throw excess food away than to find someone who could use it. Meanwhile, 100,000 British Columbians use the food banks every month. We don't have a food shortage problem, we have a connection problem. So, MeshX is bridging the disconnect by offering a matching platform, where we connect surplus food with those that can use it in a simplified and cost effective way. Food companies can post their unsold food and we match it with charities or organizations that can use it.
How we helped
Charity Pot funding helped us further understand the food industry. We learned why food waste exists, and were able to build a prototype platform. The funds matched a grant we've received from the government and our pilot program wouldn't be possible without your support, so thank you so much!
