GPM is also partnering with its supplier community and raising additional dollars. All proceeds will be matched dollar for dollar up to $1 million by a JDC donor.
Grabango is committing 1 percent of its grocery technology and 1 percent of its employees' time to eliminating food deserts and improving access to healthy food in underserved communities. Grabango joined Pledge 1%, a global movement to inspire, educate, and empower every company to leverage their assets for good.
"So much of modern technology is built for the wealthy first, and only eventually trickles down for use in our broader society. At Grabango, we're seeking to do just the opposite. We want to benefit those most in need by donating our technology for use in the neighborhoods with the fewest nutritional resources. Working in partnership with the Pledge 1% movement on this objective was a natural fit for us," said Will Glaser, CEO of Grabango.
