Chow Match technology was customized based on a food recovery experience with Food Runners since 2008.  The technology was introduce 2013 June in San Mateo and Santa Clara county.  In 2015, ChowMatch began servicing Montgomery County, Maryland and is presently being used in over 200 cities in US.  In 2016 over 1.6 million Lbs of food was tracked by the ChowMatch system, recovered and diverted back into the feeding programs in the San Mateo and Santa Clara communities.  ChowMatch manages and track all donations, recipients, donors, and volunteers.
