About FoodCloud

FoodCloud is a fast growing Dublin based not for profit organisation set up with the aim of reducing food waste and food poverty using our innovative software platform.

Within communities food businesses frequently experience food surpluses, as a consequence of the modern food system, while charities struggle to provide food for those who need it most. FoodCloud provides an opportunity for businesses and charities within communities to work together to solve the social and environmental impact associated with food waste and food poverty by connecting with each other through our software platform. FoodCloud allows food businesses to contribute to their communities in a meaningful and practical way, while reducing the cost of waste disposal and reducing their impact on the environment. FoodCloud helps to reduce the food costs of charitable organisations and allows them to enhance their service offering.

FoodCloud was established in October 2013 and has gone from strength to strength, scaling across Ireland and the UK. To date have redistributed over 4 million meals to charities.
