Its not often that a tech company and a nonprofit have goals that are so closely aligned.

Afresh Technologies, Inc., is a San Francisco-based software publisher whose use of artificial intelligence enables grocery retailers to meet customers demand for produce.

Similarly, the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank is trying to satisfy the basic human need for nourishment, despite a dearth of volunteers to deliver the goods.

So it made sense that Afresh teamed up with the food bank and in November began offering its employees to work on the front lines handing out free staples to hungry families.

Its not peanut butter and baking mix, said Afreshs marketing coordinator Katherine Harris of the bounty, most of which is fresh produce. Its high-quality fresh vegetables and proteins. There are kiwis, oranges, celery and a lot of bananas its beautiful like really healthy, nourishing food.

The groceries also include basics such as rice, potatoes, chicken, tuna and eggs, ingredients that appeal to cultures as diverse as the languages needed to communicate with the families that flock to the giveaways Russian, Tagalog and Korean as well as Cantonese and Spanish, said Cody Jang, associate director of community engagement at San Francisco-Marin Food Bank.

And then theres the broken link in the supply chain.
