Reducing food waste, one meal at a time
MealBox is a Phoenix-based company backed by Y Combinator. We reduce food waste by connecting restaurants, hotels, cafes, and grocery stores with local consumers through our technology platform. MealBox makes it easy and rewarding to discover delicious food at a fraction of the price, while our food partners can recover lost sales and get more market exposure. Food waste is a logistics problem and that is why MealBox is helping our urban communities waste less and become more sustainable.
It’s a win-win-win
MealBox works with restaurants that aren’t able to use large food donation services for their surplus meals - this is perfectly good food that usually goes to waste. That’s where MealBox comes in. We give customers access to great, fresh food at a lower cost while restaurants benefit from the additional exposure and recovery of lost sales. At the same time, we also believe in providing food to those in need. That is why, for every order you place, we donate a meal to the hungry through Feeding America.

Together we are making an impact
In a world where nearly 800 million people suffer from hunger, over 1.3 billion tons of food is wasted each year. If food waste were a country, it would be the third largest emitter of CO2 after the U.S. and China! All of these figures underline the nonsense of the situation and the urgency to put an end to it - or at least cut down on waste. The MealBox app has been created to meet this need for change and to create a positive impact. Join us!
