Nourish TT is committed to reducing hunger and food waste in Trinidad & Tobago—with a simple social innovation. Using the Nourish TT website and app, food companies with surplus food connect directly with NGOs that prepare food for the needy.
In 2017, we met our first major milestone which meant we were able to redistribute enough surplus food to provide over 100,000 MEALS to those who need it the most!
In 2018, we set our sights on expanding our network of donors, charities and volunteers. We reached out to local farmers asking them to donate surplus fresh produce and we’ve piloted this with several small donations in June, July and August.
We also achieved another milestone by creating a system where local volunteers can sign up through the Nourish TT app and serve the cause by delivering food donated by supermarkets. This September we look forward to creating new and exciting opportunities for our corporate partners to volunteer their time and directly harvest crops which will be delivered to nearby charities.
This will mark the start of an initiative we call Harvest for Hunger. We will be conducting our first Harvest for Hunger pilots, with the assistance of volunteers, we plan to harvest fruits (mangoes and citrus) and vegetables (tomatoes, ochroes, celery, chive, etc) from farms across Trinidad and Tobago and deliver them to charities who provide much needed sustenance to those most in need.
But we can’t do this without your support. So please support our efforts to reduce hunger in Trinidad and Tobago. Donate generously to our Global Giving campaign.
Later in 2018, we’ll be coming up with even more projects and programs to deepen our social impact of reducing hunger and food waste in Trinidad & Tobago.
