Who it helps: FoodFinder helps food insecure kids and adult first responders, like teachers and counselors, find their closest free food resources quickly, concisely, confidentially, and effectively.
What it does: It automatically identifies resources nearest any location in Georgia on a map, and ‘pins’ appear to identify the nearest free food resources.
How it works:
1. Open the app and your location is automatically displayed on a map.
2. Tap a nearby pin to see the name of that resource
3. Tap the name to see all the details and information for that free food resource.
4. Tap the address to automatically open google maps and get directions to reach the resource from your current location.
You can also:
- Tap the phone number to CALL the resource (if available)
- Tap the email address to automatically EMAIL the resource (if available).
- See languages spoken, services offered, website, and other available information about the resource
