March 14, 2016, was National Potato Chip Day. While some might be surprised to learn that such a thing exists while others happily run to the nearest convenience store to scoop up a bag, one company decided to take the opportunity to give back in a big way. The company, SKOUT, decided to partner with a food bank(SF-Marin)to provide 20,000 people with meals in an area where 1 in every 4 people is at risk for hunger. They did it by using their companies app; encouraging users to send virtual gifts to friends. For every virtual gift sent, Skout turned it into actual cash and donated the money to the SF-Marin food bank, until a goal of 20,000 meals were provided.

SKOUT, an Andreessen Horowitz-backed company founded in 2007 by Christian Wiklund and Niklas Lindstrom, is the world’s largest meet-and-greet app. They span 180 countries and boast 16 different languages, all chatting and connecting on the app which bears their namesake. The goal of the company and the app is to create a safe way to make friends and meet new people. The app has a generalized location feature for its adult users, a messaging and virtual gift feature, and even a nightlife feature that allows users to find the best nightlife in major cities like Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco. They can even purchase tickets and see the event’s guest lists. Although the company has enjoyed wild success with their app and are very proud of the global aspect of it, they are very community service oriented and always try keep an eye in the local community.

Skout is a regular and willing contributor to the community they are based in and even regularly encourage their employees to get involved in volunteering and giving back.The company doesn’t just preach it, though, they practice it as well. National Potato Chip Day was not the first time that SKOUT has partnered with SF-Marin food bank to provided meals for the hungry or impoverished. In 2015, the two companies partnered for National Grilled Cheese Day and donated a total of 10,000 meals.

While the two companies are completely different, they both uses technology and old-fashioned elbow grease to work toward the same goal, ending world hunger. Both companies feel fortunate to have the other as a partner in the fight. SKOUT and SF-Marin hope to continue working together to solve this global problem, one potato chip at a time.
