An App That Helps Feed the Hungry— “Hunger is not a scarcity issue. There’s more than enough food. It’s actually a logistics issue,” says Jasmine Crowe, who founded Goodr, a food waste management company last year. The Goodr app helps redirect surplus food to non-profits that help feed those in food need. About 850,000 meals have been provided to communities in Atlanta so far, with plans to expand to another city next year. “Choicelessness” and the Salad Strategy— Sweetgreen has had to deal with angry customers before. First, they got rid of the bacon. Then there was “Srirachagate” (when they got rid of Sriracha brand hot sauce). But these moves had our collective health in mind. Sweetgreen’s new streamlined menu is about ease of choice, while their app still makes it possible to custom order long-time favs. I Scream, You Scream— Pickle flavored soft serve ice cream. Because, summertime. Finally— May the 4th be with you.
