This winter, the food drive at the Bayonne Economic Opportunity Foundation in New Jersey is doing more than just collecting cans outside local grocery stores. Thanks to a new company, they’re reaching out online to get fresh fruits and vegetables and other healthy food before it spoils. YouGiveGoods is a for-profit company that enables churches, food pantries, and other charitable groups to request the items they really need, while making donating as easy as ordering from Amazon. The efficiency of online ordering makes a wide range of foods available to donate.
