FoodTweeks is a mobile app that helps people eat better in a sustainable way, while fighting hunger in America. Download the app onto your mobile device, and every time you "tweek" calories from your meal to make it more nutritious, FoodTweeks will make a donation to Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County so we can distribute the same amount of nutritious calories to families in need. There is no cost of any kind to the FoodTweeks user, and its a great way to fight hunger in OC!
