We have more than enough to end hunger in America.
Introduction
We already have everything we need to end hunger in America. Redistribute. Repurpose. Restore. This is what Transfernation aims to do.

Mission Statement: We aim to alleviate hunger by eliminating waste culture and enabling the transfer of food from those with extra to those in need.

Transfernation is a cultural movement. We aim to make the preservation of extra food such an integral part of peoples everyday lives, that waste-culture is eliminated or significantly reduced in the United States. 

We work on the basis of two online platforms: a website and a smartphone app, that connect those with extra food to those who need it. We connect corporations to social institutions so that all the extra food from corporate events can be re-purposed and redistributed instead of being thrown away.

Currently we waste about forty percent of the food produced in America and if we were able to redistribute that food we would have more than enough to end hunger in America. Essentially we combat hunger by eliminating waste culture and utilizing what we already have instead of investing in what we can't afford.

Although we currently focus on re-purposing the extra food from corporations in NYC we hope to expand much beyond that. In the future we intend not only to expand to other big cities but for this platform to be used by individuals as well. We aim for this to become a "craigslist for food" where individuals would put their extra food on the platform and individuals in need or want of extra would reach out to acquire the food.
