In 2011, Andre Angel visited a food charity no more than 2 miles away from his home for the first time. That day Andre witnessed something that he could hardly believe: everyday Americans making ends meet by waiting in line to collect food for themselves and their families. This eye-opening experience set him on a mission to end hunger.
Hunger is an issue that hides behind pride, but this epidemic affects at least 1 in 6 people from all walks of life. It has a severe impact on people you’d never expect to be suffering, from children who rely on their schools for meals to your close friend at work. This is referred to as food insecurity.
Fueled by his newfound passion and years of experience in business, Andre founded TangoTab as a fun, simple way to solve a serious, massive problem. With over 50 million Americans going to bed hungry every night, and over 1 billion meals dined out each week, connecting the dots was simple. By providing a meal to a local food charity every time he paired a hungry consumer with an empty table at a restaurant, what began as a complex issue evolved into a solvable problem.
To date, TangoTab has fed over 1 million people. We are fortunate to have the opportunity to positively impact people’s lives, but we need your help. Become an active TangoTab member and begin making a difference in your community today.
Approximately 50 million people in the United States will go to bed hungry and 17 million of them are children. Is that startling? We typically envision hunger as a problem occurring outside our borders. Usually, when we think of hunger, images of the poorest nations in, Africa, Asia or Latin America come to mind. When in reality, hunger is one of the most significant battles happening in our own backyard.
Every time you eat at a partnering restaurant and 'check in' on the TangoTab app,
we donate a meal to a person in need through a local food charity.
