It's OK, we all do it: no matter how hungry you are, before you pick up your fork to dive in to your gorgeous plate of food — you grab your phone to snap a picture. Whether you take the photo for yourself, for the likes, for your memory book… what if it could do more?

What if that food picture could feed people in need?

That’s exactly what Andrew Glantz pictured with Gift A Meal — and he’s making it happen.
