Good Food Recovery-Gitm Foundation

Good Food Recovery is powered by the application ChowMatch – a software technology that uses matching logic to connect agencies with surplus food donated by restaurants, grocery stores, caterers, farms, home growers and many others.  The technology helps to streamline the distribution of untouched surplus food to agencies and organizations such as family shelters, homeless shelters, neighborhood feeding programs, food pantries, churches, schools, 100% affordable housing programs and many other outreach programs.
