Before you hit the ‘Best Before Date’ (BBD) expiration, you can post sealed food, pre-packaged food, meal kits and non-perishable food items.
I am travelling food:
Is your fridge packed and you have travel plans? Do not worry, GOAT is here to help. You can post fruits, veggies, meal kits, or any perishable food product before their ‘Best Before Date’ expiry. Let’s post!
Excess event food:
We have all been to weddings, holiday parties, conferences and other big events where there is a lot of excess food that will typically end up in the garbage even though it is still good. You can use GOAT to post unopened meals, sealed appetizer trays, dry desserts and any other items that are packaged. If your event was hosted by a professional event company with a commercial kitchen and staff, you can work with your event professionals to post food at the end of the day. Lets chat!
Special Community Events:
Are you hosting a community food gathering and are looking to get the word out for people to come to your event and eat delicious food? You can use GOAT to post your event and spread the word to feed those in need. More importantly, if you have food left from these events, you can most definitely use GOAT to post the excess food so that none of it ends up in waste. Let’s join forces!
