FoodFinderGA

FoodFinderGA is a free smartphone app developed by a Georgia Public Schools graduate - it’s available on the Apple App Store or Google Play right now (search: foodfinder), or online at www.foodfinderga.org.

The app creates a 100% anonymous, direct connection between students & families who need food and their closest free food providers.

Both the FoodFinderGA app and the website showed a dramatic increase in use over the Thanksgiving break: 
• Thanksgiving week visits to FoodFinder = +496% vs. weekly average during this school year-to-date. 
• Average Daily use during Thanksgiving week = +500% v. the daily avg this school year. 
• Peak usage was Monday 11/21, the 1st full week without school lunch this school year = +1,269% daily average

Please download the app today, and tell your students about it before the Holiday break.

Thank you!
