The site serves 9 American cities and shows deals offered by participating restaurants. Beneficiaries include the Northern Illinois Food Bank, the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma, and SoupMobile. Over 82,000 people have already been helped by the service.

Current projects: Sanga School Water Project, Savegulu Girls Project, and Vida Spa Water Project.
