58% of all food produced is never eaten!


FoodMesh is your donation and procurement solution

Your business or charity can sign up to buy, sell, donate, or claim donated unsold surplus food, through our online Marketplace and Retail Food Recovery Program.

Your environmental metrics are tracked and measured to show how you’ve helped feed more, save money and waste less.

  • “For 2018, the FoodMesh platform has probably been the largest source from which our charity was able to receive food from various warehouses and food suppliers.
    Everything from frozen salmon sausages, croissants, cheese, coconut chips, fresh milk, yoghurt, canned goods, frozen strawberries and more!”
    – Gia Tran, Lotus Light Charity
  • “FoodMesh has enabled us to reach more charities by simplifying how we donate food, increasing our traceability, and helping us gather KPI on our social and environmental metrics. We no longer have to spend time calling multiple charities and then track outside of our system. All of the metrics and transactions are gathered efficiently via the FoodMesh portal.”
    -Johanne Pilon, Temple Brands
  • I really love FoodMesh !! My first donation pickup was worth just over $9000 and the clients LOVED the items !!!’
