Job Description

Canada has a $49B food waste issue while 1 in 7 Canadians are food insecure. This amount of food waste generates 56M tonnes of methane gas and Retailers along the supply chain are responsible for 79% of that waste. Those same Retailers produce 3.2M metric tonnes of surplus edible food each year; 96% of which is NOT being rescued or redistributed.

Be One to Give is an on-demand B2B delivery app for surplus food lost or wasted along the supply chain. Powered by technology and logistics we deliver food with a shelf life of less than 48 hours to agencies supporting those who are food insecure. We do this at a cost to Retailers of $1 per lb with biodegradable packaging -OR- $.50 per lb without; deliverables include same day pickups, branded labels and daily impact reporting.

Our technology provides Retailers with the tools necessary to capture 100% of surplus food from their daily operations. Through two easy steps we help our clients achieve their organic waste reduction goals by providing on-demand food redistribution at the end of the day. Our solution will lower the cost of food waste, reduce methane emissions and feed millions who are food insecure.

To date we’ve redistributed 19,040 lbs of food to 14,280 people diverting 72,352 lbs of methane gas from the atmosphere. Our mission is to close the gap between surplus food and food insecurity by redistributing 100% of avoidable food waste across Canada by 2030!

We’re now looking for a Software Developer to help build the app to it's final stage; this includes integration mapping with interactive icons, e-commerce capacity for custom order billing and invoicing for monthly users. Our MVP is currently available on both iOS/Android and has been active in-market since Aug ‘21.
