How does GiftAMeal work?

Restaurants partner with 

GiftAMeal and are 

added to the app. Takes

only 5 minutes!

Customers take a

photo of their restaurant purchase on the app for free

For each photo, we donate to

 a local food bank to give a meal to a person in need. 

(An additional meal is given if the 

photo is shared on Facebook or 


*1 meal = 1.2 pounds of food (meat, produce, dairy products, canned goods, etc)

being distributed to a neighborhood pantry where those in need can access it.

What Restaurants Say

" It's a classic win-win. It's marketing for the restaurant. At the same time, it's also providing for people who are in need. It's a great way to use people's inclination for social media and do something positive at the same time.”​

John Perkins, Owner of Juniper

Lives Changed

With GiftAMeal, your restaurant can make a significant impact on the lives of people in your community with very little effort on your part. 


“My daughter is 15. The food program really, really helped us. Her grades have gone sky high. We’re in a good place now - we have a house and food and now we’re going to give back.


“Before I got my own place, I was having trouble finding somewhere to eat. I have a daughter now, she just turned one. Everybody is supporting me and I love the support - that makes me feel like I’m going to be a good father.”


“I didn’t realize that people were hungry until I stopped working and retired. You never think that you would end up on food stamps. I never thought it. Even though it’s rough, I’m still blessed.”
