Plentiful is a service that helps connect food providers with the people who need them. More than 42 million Americans live in food insecure households, and supplemental food programs are an essential resource for many families. The NYC Food Assistance Collaborative, a group of organizations convened by the NYC Mayor’s Office of Food Policy, works hard to improve and grow these programs.
The Plentiful brand represents the mission of these programs: providing stability and nutrition for families, while also elevating and providing warmth to the process. The platform itself includes a website for food providers to organize operations, as well as Android and SMS apps (in multiple languages) for customers to find and coordinate food service.
We understand that not all those in need have smartphone access and others may not use applications. We developed a texting service for expanded support, including English, Spanish, and Russian versions.
