GOODr Celebrates a Year of Fighting Food Insecurity in Atlanta
Social entrepreneur Jasmine Crowe combines innovation with compassion to create GOODR, a sustainable waste management app that leverages technology to combat hunger. GOODR paired with Atlanta restaurants, businesses, event centers and grocery stores to redirect surplus food to those in need. After traveling to Haiti, Jasmine Crowe felt inspired to make a difference in the Atlanta community, where the food security idea began. The “DO GOODR” established Sunday Soul, a campaign that provided a pop-up restaurant experience to food-insecure members in the community. After having an ideation session on gentrification with Joey Womack at Goodie Nation, a resourceful program that works with larger businesses to serve underprivileged communities and encourage change through education, Crowe was selected to participate in the program that led to the kickstart of GOODR.
In addition to contributing to the fight against hunger, Goodr helps businesses earn valuable tax deductions by donating their food waste instead of throwing it away. The blockchain enabled apps provides clients insight into their food waste patterns, real-time donation/tax deduction info, and community impact reports.
