At Goodr, they believe that hunger isn’t a scarcity problem. 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, over 72 billion pounds of perfectly edible food is wasted, yet 42 million people are suﬀering from food insecurity. At the same moment, over $40 billion in tax credits for businesses goes unclaimed annually. Goodr believes the solution is simple: Feed more, waste less. Their business model confirms 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 its blockchain-enabled platform and mobile app that enables 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.

As the holidays quickly approach, many people are finding ways to donate and give back to their communities. Some choose to donate clothes, while others donate to their local food bank, but one Atlanta-based startup is helping restaurants give back year round.
