In May, we interviewed Katie Levans, founder of PlateShare, a mobile and social application that operates under the premise, "Dine Out, Do Good."
PlateShare's sole aim is to feed the hungry. The idea is micro-donations. PlateShare offers diners the opportunity to round their restaurant bill up to the nearest dollar and donates the difference to Second Harvest Metrolina to fight hunger. This past Friday, Queen City Q rolled out a point-of-sale integration and is the first partner in the U.S. to offer diners an option to donate to PlateShare directly from their receipt.
PlateShare will debut its mobile app later this month during Charlotte Restaurant Week which will held July 19-28. According to PlateShare, "spare change makes big change." We like it.
