“The number of people the Greater Vancouver Food Bank helps each week is staggering: over 28,000 people. But they receive 75% of donations during the holiday season. We wanted to do our part in raising awareness about the great work they do in our community all year,” says Hiyu founder Daniel Roizman. “We created an app to make grocery shopping easier and more social, and we wanted to put that into action for the thousands of people who receive support from the food bank.”
Hiyu hopes to reach 1000 “Likes” by the end of January as part of its Gift of Grocery campaign in order to donate 1000 lbs of groceries. Anyone can visit their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/
Hiyu lets you discover the best products at the grocery store by connecting you with people whose opinion you trust. Users can post products and great grocery store deals though a photo feed; find new favourites with helpful tags such as Gluten-Free, Vegan and non-GMO; and of course share grocery shopping lists. www.gethiyu.com
