Feedie the World

We’ve finally discovered a good reason to whip out our smartphones in the middle of dinner and take pictures of our food so that we can share them with our pals on Twitter and Facebook. No, really, we did. It’s to help support a nonprofit called the Lunchbox Fund, which provides meals to needy children in South Africa. First you need to download an iPhone app called Feedie. When you check in at a participating restaurant and use the app to share a photo of the food you’re eating on social media sites, the restaurant will make a donation to the Lunchbox Fund. Mario Batali is an early backer, as are about 100 restaurants, mostly in New York. An Android app is also in the works. — Ralph Raffio
