FoodFinder, created by Jack Griffin, is both a smartphone app (FoodFinder - Fighting Hunger) and a website (www.foodfinderga.org) that delivers valuable information to food insecure children and their families to let them know exactly when and where they can receive free food assistance near them. Free food resources like food pantries, churches, and co-ops are listed, and the information for each resource includes things like street address, phone numbers, hours of operation, and languages spoken. FoodFinder requires zero monetary or login input from the user, and it provides all available resource data quickly, easily, and privately.
