Our Mission

"impactus" exists to maximize the impact of food security organizations. We do this by leveraging an innovative SaaS solution that enables food banks to optimize their distribution channels, increase donor retention, and decrease waste. Our platform integrates into a food bank's existing website that allows people to directly purchase the most needed items for food banks. Our team has come together after leading the World's Largest Food Drive, launching a campus food pantry, and scaling a successful tech-for-good company. We believe that great nonprofit organizations should do what they do best. Our innovations help more people get better food cheaper and more efficiently. Together we can end hunger in North America by leveraging a scalable and high-impact business model.

Our Background

Our team of passionate college students experienced in addressing rural and urban hunger as well as disrupting the nonprofit sector with scalable technology. We all have a mission to maximize the social impact of nonprofit organizations. Here is a little bit about each of our team members. After leading the World's Largest Food Drive, Amanda Dango went on to become the Executive Director of the first food pantry on campus serving university students, faculty, and staff. She recently attended the Clinton Global Initiative University under the Food Drive Kit Project which provides information to donors and food banks on the most effective and efficient food drives. Shreye Saxena launched Pennies 4 Progress to integrate with leading mobile point of sale systems and DonorsChoose.org to enable rounding donations for local schools. Pennies 4 Progress recently merged with GoodLabs and has reached over 3,000 merchants nationwide. Brooke Wilner was an impact specialist with Pennies 4 Progress and worked alongside local food security organizations to understand their needs and challenges to maximize their social impact.
