Hi, I'm Melanie. I enjoy cooking but don't have the time and energy to do it every.single.day. Eating out is great for a treat but hard on the wallet and waistline. I know I'm not alone.
FoodSwap is a website and mobile app that makes sharing food with your friends and family simple. When I do have the time to cook, I can make extra portions and post what I'm cooking and how much is available. Sharing food is a spontaneous and tangible way that we can engage with our friends and family. It's a real connection.
Your funds will go a long way. They'll help to pay for basic nourishment for a developer or two as we add features to the website and create a mobile app. Your support will also tide us over as we apply to a Pittsburgh startup accelerator. Last but not least, it will pay for childcare for my one-year-old son while I work towards these goals.
You can also help by spreading the word about FoodSwap. Could this service benefit the people you know? Is it something you would participate in? Sign up now and we'll let you know once FoodSwap is ready for primetime.
I'd love to hear your feedback.
Updates: There will be a Premium Tier Membership for amateur food purveyors who want to promote their homemade food products. Since making good food costs money, you should be able to recoup some of the cost of your time and materials.
Non-cooks can also participate by freeloading off the goodwill of friends or buying site credit.
