Goodr Partners with ISS to Help Reduce Hunger, Divert Surplus Food

By , On , In News

Goodr’s Surplus Food Recovery service continues to grow with the newest partner, ISS, a leading integrated facilities management and employee experience company. The company’s food services brand, ISS Guckenheimer, has teamed with Goodr to measure, assess, and reroute surplus food from corporate cafeterias and dining venues to people in need.

“We are proud of the impact our partnership with ISS Guckenheimer is already having on the company and their local community,” said Jasmine Crowe, founder and CEO of Goodr. “We look forward to continuing our work together to reduce ISS Guckenheimer’s food waste and fight hunger with our technology and logistics.”

“We’re extremely happy with the results so far with this program and our relationship with Goodr,” said Paul Fairhead, CEO of ISS Guckenheimer. “We consider this program a triple win: we provide nutritious meals to people who need them; lower greenhouse emissions through diverted food that would otherwise end up in landfills, and reduce costs by analyzing data and making iterative improvements to offerings and purchases.”

Surplus Food Recovery is one of Goodr’s Food Waste Solutions. With Goodr’s technology and logistics, partners place a surplus food pickup, a driver is dispatched to manage the pickup, and the food is provided to a nonprofit within Goodr’s network. By rerouting edible surplus food to those in need, partners, like ISS Guckenheimer, are able to make better business decisions, reduce the food waste sent to landfill, and support local communities. The impact of Goodr’s Surplus Food Recovery program is immense; in 2021, the company served over 480,000 meals and diverted more than 580,000 pounds of surplus food, across all its partners.

The Surplus Food Recovery program aligns with the ISS Guckenheimer’s recently announced ambitions and strategy for Net Zero Emissions and further supports its mission to help clients minimize their impact on the environment by reducing the use of energy and water, decreasing carbon emissions, and cutting production of waste, including food.
