The best food & waste news at your disposal

November 2016

Hi there,

The holiday season is always a time of reflection, and for us, that means celebrating our first year anniversary of Spoiler Alert. Just shy of one year after our launch in November 2015, we were proud to announce that we raised $2.5 million to help fight food waste and are working with Sysco Corporation, the nation's largest food distributor.

This month, one of our co-founders, Emily Malina, also received a shout-out from the local tech community here in Boston, and we continue to feel the support from everyone who believes in us — thank you! 

What we love the most is reading about incredible partnerships between Spoiler Alert users, hearing your stories of food recovery, and learning more about communities that could benefit from our technology. Please continue to share with us!

If you know a food business, farm, or nonprofit that needs support with their food donations, you can refer them here. Wishing you a great beginning to the holiday season!

- The Spoiler Alert team

P.S. Looking for your next opportunity? We're hiring! We're looking for Engineering, UI/UX, Customer Success, and Sales talent to join us in Boston. See job openings
