One in three Latino children are at risk of hunger.
Americans will spend about $709 billion in 2015 on eating out.
If we could tap 10% of that spending, less than an average tip, and direct it to those in need, it would roughly double the food assistance provided via SNAP.
One for you, one for me is a payment / shopping cart plug-in that makes it easy for a vendor to give their customers the ability to donate a meal while they pay for their own meal.
- Order your meal and enjoy
- The bill is automatically appended with a "1+1 meal" checkbox, a dollar amount set by the restaurant (say 10% of the bill) and a reminder that you may be able to deduct this donation.
- When the bill comes, the customer can check the "1+1 meal" option if they choose.
- This option is noted when the check is closed and the payment plug-in handles making the additional charge and transferring the funds to a food charity account associated with the program.
