Patrick O'Neill - Advisor/Consultant - Hunger & Crowd-Feeding

Patrick O'Neill is the Founder & CEO of Amp Your Good.  Amp Your Good has developed a crowd-feeding platform that radically changes and improves how food drives work by replacing the traditional physical collection model with an online donation model. Similar to crowdfunding, people and organizations set up food drives hosted on our platform at no cost. However, instead of donating money, supporters choose the food items they would like to donate and pay for them via a standard e-commerce purchase. When a drive ends, we deliver all of the food directly to the food pantry, soup kitchen or shelter supported by the drive. Nothing ever sits in a collection box. Here are a couple of highlights:

Transparency - We make it as easy to donate food as it is to donate money so people know exactly how they are helping out.

Impact - people can donate fresh produce items and other high impact food items rather than traditional canned goods, which are oftentimes the least nutritious food.

More food! Drives raise more food on our platform and every donation counts due to our “wedding registry” feature.

My role is to lead the team moving the ball forward. There's a lot of work to be done and great things to accomplish!!
