PRLog - May 22, 2014 - SAN FRANCISCO -- In beta since January, SupperShare is a new online platform to connect people and give back through home-cooked meals.
From intimate dinners of three at a host’s home to larger community gatherings, SupperShare wants to become a community hospitality platform that promotes experiences and connections by removing the technological clutter and connecting hosts and guests in more meaningful way.
The only sharing economy company that directly benefits social causes with every meal, hosts choose a charity of their choice with $1 of every seat to be donated to a growing list of organizations that strengthen communities both locally and abroad. Organizations can also use the platform to fundraise and enable supporters to host fundraising dinners.
“Growing up in the countryside of Italy, my family would organize shared meals on a big wooden table outside our home with tourists and neighbors who would participate by bringing wine or donating some euros,” said Roberto Scaccia, CEO and co-founder of SupperShare. “Our online platform is really about the opportunity to get offline, engage with people over a shared meal, and – for hosts - make some extra money.”
“Like Lyft passengers sitting in the front seat, SupperShare wants to break down the traditional barriers that divide us for a different kind of dining experience,”
With a small core team, SupperShare has built meaningful partnerships with a range of sharing economy start-ups and community organizations, which has enabled the boot-strapped company to grow in San Francisco and launch in Italy in July. To learn more, go to www.SupperShare.com.
