Mealshare is a non-profit on a mission to end youth hunger. They use a buy-one, give-one model that takes place in restaurants. For every Mealshare item purchased by a customer, we provide one meal to a youth in need. Their meals are provided through a network of partner charities, both local and international.
Their vision is a world where it is easy to for people to share with the less fortunate, and every youth’s basic nutritional needs are met as a result. Mealshare believes in ending youth hunger first by feeding all youth currently in need of meals. However, they’re committed to do this in ways that address the root cause of hunger, not just the symptoms.
