Insecurity (featuring Megha Kulshreshtha of Food Connect)

Megha Kulshreshtha took what she learned as a corporate data analyst and focused on the growing problem of food insecurity in America’s urban centers. She launched an organization that is using mobile technology to make it easier to collect food donations on demand so they can reach people who need them the most.

Together we discuss the innovation and technology that Food Connect uses to make it easy for restaurants to donate excess food to shelters and other hunger-fighting organizations. Megha shares lessons she has learned while forming a non-profit, how she manages the logistics of handling inconsistent donations, and a look at the impact that Food Connect could have in cities around the country.
