A SMARTPHONE app linking cafes and restaurants with local not-forprofit groups is making giving food to people in need easier. Crooked Spire Coffee House in Midland was the first business to sign up for the ReFood app developed at ECU. Cafe owner Mike Matich said the app was easy to use. “No one likes the idea of food being thrown away, so when I heard about the ReFood app and how it could help us link up with local not-for profits I was stoked to take part,” he said. The app trialled in the City of Swan fills a gap to help food outlets give away even small amounts directly to a not-for-profit in their community. Have a milestone?
