    Looking forward to seeing the partnerships you make with soup kitchens. Which ones have you worked with thus far and are there any challenges you've faced with connecting restaurants to the soup kitchens?

    • Kofi Frimpong

      I'll say that signing up soup kitchens in the NYC, Philly and DC areas so far have been pretty smooth. They get the concept and the idea that the homeless can be served with a variety of meals from local restaurants that they may not be able to experience on an everyday basis. For the restaurants, it's really about selling them on the publicity they get, the marketing, and the bulk meals that are being bought (on a discount) that still supports their restaurant. Still looking for ways to market mealtics to the masses on a small budget. People love it but we have to find creative ways to get the word out.

        Have you thought of making something visual? Like stickers that you can post around cities? Something that looks like an actual meal ticket? So that it makes people curious?

    This is an awesome idea, and I love that you can see how many people have been fed.

      Thanks! Really appreciate it and would appreciate it if you spread the word!
