eatBCH is a peer-to-peer electronic cash-to-food system.
With our first $5 we fed 40 people in one location. After a few months, we were giving thousands of meals each week in 23 locations. Now we're in two countries. So how do we do it?
We've been blessed to have people and corporations donate over 130 Bitcoin Cash in our first year.
Every penny we receive goes to buying food. Volunteers in each region turn that food into hot meals for their communities.
In most cases the people come together and eat as a community. But we also deliver meals directly to the sick and elderly.
People like you make our work possible.
