Combating food insecurity with Google’s newest search tool

Google Launches New Tool to Combat Food Insecurity

“For the food insecure, finding a place to access free food options locally can be a challenge. But now thanks to Google and a trio of partners, getting food assistance will hopefully be easier than ever.

The Find Food Support website (findfoodsupport.withgoogle.com) is designed to be a one-stop resource for those in need of food to quickly find and access the food services they need. At the core of the new resource is a locator tool built on Google Maps allowing users to search for the nearest food bank, food pantry or school lunch program pickup site. Using location listings and data from the USDA, No Kid Hungry and Food Finder, the tool has 90,000 listings across all 50 states.”
