In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, we at 360 Eats are continuing to work alongside local businesses, fellow organizations, and our communities to reduce food waste and provide nutritious and wholesome meals for those who now more than ever are least able to afford to feed themselves.
360 Eats is a newly formed 501(c)(3) charitable organization founded in 2020 that is based out of Tampa Bay, FL. Our mission is to create a just and sustainable food system free from hunger and food waste. 30-40% of quality food produced in the United States goes to waste each year and yet still 1 in every 8 American Citizens is considered food-insecure. 360 Eats provides a "360-degree" mobile food service with an innovative solution aimed at bridging the gaps between food waste, food insecurity, and sustainability.
In just 7 months, we have been able to rescue over 19,380.8lbs of good food, serve 7,282 nutritious meals to those in need and create thousands of pounds of compost from our food scraps. We are looking to vastly grow these numbers by the end of the year and are seeking a volunteer Fundraising Specialist to help us achieve the funding we need to grow.
The Fundraising Specialist will plan and oversee campaigns and events to raise money and other kinds of donations for the organization. The role will ensure that campaigns are effective by researching potential donors ahead of time and examining records of those who have given in the past.
- Research prospective donors
- Create a strong fundraising message that appeals to potential donors
- Identify and contact potential donors
- Use online platforms, such as crowdsourcing, to raise donations
- Organize a campaign or event to solicit donations
- Maintain records of donor information
- Evaluate the success of previous fundraising events
- Train volunteers in fundraising procedures and practices
- Ensure that all legal reporting requirements are satisfied

About 360 EATS
3100 TEAL TER, SAFETY HARBOR, FL 34695, US
360 Eats' mission is to create a just and sustainable food system where no one goes hungry and no food is wasted.
Saving Food, Serving Food, Sprouting Food
360 Eats is a newly formed 501(c)(3) Nonprofit mobile food service providing an innovative solution to bridge the gaps between food waste, food insecurity, and sustainability.
30-40% of quality food produced in the United States goes to waste each year and yet still 1 in every 8 American Citizens is considered food-insecure. Our goal is to eradicate hunger and food waste as we know it by providing upwards of 500,000 nutritious and gourmet meals to those in need and rescue over 1 million pounds of good food in the United States each year.
How It Works
The Saving Food program rescues good food from going to waste by collecting excess food from businesses, fellow organizations, and individuals by our mobile Food Rescue team and volunteers.
Our Serving Food program gives surplus food new life in the form of nutritious and gourmet meals for those less fortunate. We work in partnership with a licensed commissary kitchen and volunteer professional chefs to prepare meals and then distribute the meals directly to those in need.
The Sprouting Food program ensures that donated food is used to its full potential by turning food scraps into compost to grow more food throughout affected communities. Partnerships with local farms and composting initiatives as well as apps such as Make Soil allow us to fulfill our goal of a zero-waste system.
