Food Tribe Raises 80% of its Indiegogo Goal!

The Food Tribe is a digital gift card program and restaurant review app. Our goal is to “connect good people to good food” through the creation of community amongst foodies and restaurant owners. We came up with the idea after noticing how unhelpful restaurant reviews were: we want to create a space that encourages community on and offline.

From April to May, we launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo in order to build a better restaurant review website for Los Angeles, because #RestaurantReviewsSuck.

Food Tribe is raising money to become the world's first cause based restaurant review website. As part of our Last Day Challenge on May 31st, Food Tribe Founder Terence agreed to match donations dollar for dollar up to $1000.

Supporters responded overwhelmingly! We garnered $1,145 donations on the last day of the campaign! Woohoo! That equals an (how many) meals donated to the Los Angeles regional Food Bank as a result of Food Tribe #TribeMembers!

Combined with our Last Day Challenge, we raised is $6,436: 80% of our goal! We’ll be using the funds to build, design, and launch a prototype of a Los Angeles based restaurant review website.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be working to fulfill the rewards that you ordered: sending thank you’s, t-shirts, socks, and most importantly, tasty gift cards to Food Tribe Friend Cookie Good. While awaiting updates, be sure to download the Food Tribe app so you can easily access your gift card when available.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to Food Tribe’s fundraising efforts! We couldn’t have done it without the support of our friends, family, and #TribeMembers. Your efforts helped Food Tribe raise over 100 meals to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.

We’ve had quite a few responses for people wanting to help after the campaign.  If you missed the campaign and are  interested in supporting our mission to connect good people to good food, we have set up a PayPal account  for you to contribute. You will still be entitled to perks! Please select which perk you’d like for us to send.

Last, but certainly not least, a special thank you to:
