InstaHeart is an Android app and text messaging service that enables food stamp users to order healthy food baskets and pick them up at participating locations in their neighborhood.
Retailers bundle low cost foods into a curated and discounted InstaHeart basket that is available for pickup. Retailers reduce food waste by distributing food that would ultimately be discarded. Savings are passed along to EBT recipients. The baskets contain recipes to help promote andsustain healthy habits.
Individuals on CalFresh, SNAP or WIC have access to free or discounted android devices and the text messaging service meets the need of feature phone users.
