65% of Americans eat out once a week, taking millions of photos of their meals. What if, instead of sharing pictures of their food, diners could share meals with the 65% of South African children living below the poverty line? It was this mission that led The Lunchbox Fund to launch its Feedie app with the support of Tribal New York.
Feedie is a photosharing app that is optimised for sharing food pictures, thanks to filters such as “toasty”, “leafy” or “seared”. When a photo is shared on social networks like Twitter or Facebook, it is branded for The Lunchbox Fund and, more importantly, the restaurant it was taken in. For each share of a meal from its tables, the restaurant donates one meal to The Lunchbox Fund so that South African children can have the energy to work towards an education and pulling themselves, and their families, above the poverty line.
