At Goodr, we believe that hunger isn’t a scarcity issue. It’s a logistics issue. Even with many social programs that aim to end hunger, the current food supply chain ecosystem in the United States has failed to solve this problem which has grown into a national epidemic.
Every year in the United States, we waste over 72 billion pounds of perfectly edible food yet 42 million people are suﬀering from food insecurity. At the same time, over $40 billion in tax credits for businesses goes unclaimed annually. We believe the solution is simple: Feed more, waste less. Our business model proves that good business and servicing communities in need can truly be one and the same. 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 our 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. The Goodr model aims to provide a triple-win solution by improving an organization’s bottom line through charitable tax donations, reducing its greenhouse emissions from landﬁlls and getting its edible surplus food to local communities in need.
