Harmless Harvest is dedicated to generating positive feedback loops between people and plants.

Food for All’s mission is to make quality food affordable to all while stopping perfectly good and delicious meals from being wasted. By building social awareness regarding food waste, they want to allow people to make a major social impact by buying great food from restaurants, food which was once considered leftovers and thrown away at the end of the day. Dine for as little as $3 and save the planet. Rescue delicious food from restaurants before they close, for at least 50% off!
