About Us

MEANS Database is a five-year-old nonprofit tech startup that works nationally to recover unsold food and connect it with nearby nonprofits serving those in need. Since we were founded, we have recovered over 3 million pounds of food and served more than 370,000 meals through our Community Meal Program.

Our team works entirely remotely, so we prioritize team members' work-life balance and establish clear boundaries between work and our personal lives. To facilitate this, we encourage all staff to set Slack and all other services, including a work phone line, to Do Not Disturb while offline.

Our team works hard but isn't afraid to have fun. An Among Us video game tournament is just one of our recent team activities, and in the pre-COVID past, there have been snowball dodgeball games (with felt "snowballs") and group picnics.
