When I found out that there are 50 million people going hungry each day and 17 million of them are children, I knew I had to take action and try to solve this problem… What I mean by solving the problem is: developing a sustainable solution that could eliminate hunger, altogether.
As we all know, there are many organizations trying to address this issue: food banks, pantries, churches, government agencies and more. They all rely on traditional volunteering and donations. Unfortunately, although they mean well and do a good job, they have not been able to solve the problem since these organizations depend solely on donations to grow. And, we all know how hard it is to constantly raise funds.
So, a different solution had to be devised. I had to rely on my knowledge of building businesses and startups to solve this massive problem. Some may say that eliminating hunger is a pipe dream. However, I believe that we have found the solution. We can definitely do this… Here’s how:
Did you know that Americans eat over One Billion meals in restaurants every week? Imagine if every time you ate at a restaurant a hungry person also got fed, without costing you a penny. Sounds very simple, doesn’t it? With a billion meals in restaurants every week and 50 Million hungry Americans around us, the math is simple: we have found a way to feed all of our hungry and eliminate hunger.
To do this, we developed an app: TangoTab. We created this app to make ending hunger fun and simple. Download the TangoTab from your app store to see our partner restaurants that you can dine at. Every time you use the app at our partner restaurants, TangoTab donates the cost of a meal to a local food charity to feed the local hungry. All you have to do is tap the ‘TangoTab It’ button on the app while at a participating restaurant. It really is that simple!
If we all adopted this app, we can effectively end hunger. We cannot do this without your help. So, tell your friends and the restaurants around you to join the movement. Together, we can beat Hunger.
