The simple truth is that we waste so much food, so why don’t we share it?
Our philosophy is FOOD SHARING is one solution to FOOD WASTE. We believe that every person can reduce the amount of food wasted by either donating surplus food or receiving someone else’s surplus food for an “affordable amount” all while supporting local charities.
We are entering an era of social shift. New generations are demanding more from corporations and they are damn right to demand it.
It is not only about profit anymore, it is about social good, it is about protecting the environment, it is about community. GOAT has elevated its game to become something more, a social enterprise.
It all started when our GOAT founder was at home in his kitchen packaging food to share with a family member who had recently moved to Canada. This simple act sparked a BIG idea! Through this simple act he discovered the huge opportunity to decrease food waste in communities across the nation by providing a way for people to share surplus food with others nearby.
With a global food waste crisis on the rise – contributing to 1.3 billion tons of wasted food and 3.3 billion metric tons of CO2 emitted into our environment annually, this idea of a Food Sharing Revolution has HUGE POSSIBILITIES for us all.
The simple truth is we all waste so much food – so why don’t we share it? From this idea, GOAT was created – as a means of connecting people. We connect those with surplus food to those who will enjoy it.
With busy lifestyles, a diminished sense of community and sometimes unfortunate economic downfalls, GOAT aims to bring communities and people together to achieve something extraordinary… one SHARED MEAL at a time.
Is simple – A Social enterprise that uses business for social good. GOAT’s goal is to meet 10 out of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals set for corporations around the world.
