About this app

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 photo on 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 additional meals! Your photo can be of food, drink, a receipt, friends, something cool at the restaurant, or even a selfie.

How does it work? Restaurants pay to be on our app as a mix of marketing and giving back - it’s free for you! Anytime you take a photo at one of our participating restaurants, GiftAMeal makes a donation to a local food bank. These donations go towards distributing nutritious food to neighborhood pantries where those in need can access it.

Over 1 million 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!

I love being able to help with meals for those in need. I like food. This is a great app. However, one thing I do not like about this app: location must be turned on, to use it. I keep location off for many reasons. If we could be given the chance to use it without location, I'll change my review to five stars. UPDATE: I removed this from my phone. It started nagging me to give it location access when I didn't open it.. it might be the reason my data usage spiked to four times normal. Done.

Sorry about that, Angelina! Looks like we have an issue that can cause a crash during onboarding on certain devices, but we have identified the problem and will have a fix out soon. If you have any further issues or questions, please reach out at

Simple and easy way to give back and find businesses that care about the local community. Plus I was already taking these they can do some good. Who wouldn't like this?
