Feed those in need, one picture at a time.
Over 40 million Americans currently face hunger, not knowing where they will find their next meal. GiftAMeal allows you to help at no cost.
Simply take a picture using the GiftAMeal app at a participating restaurant to provide a meal to someone in need in your community. Share your picture on social media to give a second meal.
How does it work? Restaurants pay to be on our app - it’s free for you! Anytime you take a picture at one of the participating restaurants, GiftAMeal makes a donation to your local food bank. These donations go towards distributing nutritious food to neighborhood pantries where those in need can access it.
Over 300,000 meals have been gifted to those in need so far. And every meal makes a difference. Bridgett, a single mom who previously relied on a local pantry for support, shared her story with us: “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.”
Help someone like Bridgett with GiftAMeal today!
GiftAMeal currently has participating restaurants in St. Louis, Chicago, and Detroit.

Ratings and Reviews
This is a great way to help the community!
I’ve been using the app a long time and have never been able to give back as much as I do now. While I love volunteering, work makes it very hard to find time. With GiftAMeal, I have been able to help support food banks and shelters in my neighborhood give to those in need by simply checking into restaurants on my lunch breaks. I haven’t experienced any major bugs or issues since downloading the app. Also, I reached out with a couple questions and the team got back to me really quickly. It seems like they really care about their social mission. I would encourage everyone to download and start giving back. It’s really easy to use.
Love this app!!!
I was eating at one of my favorite new restaurants in St. Louis, The Chocolate Pig, and my waiter mentioned that they had recently partnered with this startup called GiftAMeal where anyone at the restaurant could give a meal to someone in need in St. Louis for free. So I decided to check out the app and was really impressed that it only took like 10 seconds to donate a meal. What an ingenious way to try to fight hunger. I saw that there were a bunch of my favorite restaurants on the app as well so I will definitely be using GiftAMeal the next time I go!
Easiest way to give back to your community!
Honestly, this app is such a brilliant way to fight hunger while doing something you probably already do at restauarants - taking a picture of your food! I find it neat that I can now make an impact on my community by simply taking a picture of my food. Also, it’s a great way to find local restaurants that you might not know about and explore your local food scene!
