Flashfood is a mobile application to help food service businesses, food recovery organisations, local community centres and volunteers to work together to recover perishable food and connect it with those in need.

Businesses (such as catering companies) which have surplus food can enter information on the app, which alerts nearby charities to the availability. Food can then be donated to families and individuals who might need it; they are alerted through a text message. 

The app is designed for use in the USA.
