Featured on ABC, NY1, and Forbes, SPARE NYC allows New Yorkers to round up their dine-out bills to the nearest dollar to fight hunger in their own city. We are excited and proud to say that in 2015 our users provided over 5,000 meals!
Your change counts! Just $1 feeds 4 hungry New Yorkers through Food Bank For New York City and City Harvest.
Each round-up donation, always $0.99 cents or less, is sent to support either Food Bank For NYC or City Harvest. Participating restaurants reward users of the app for rounding up frequently in their establishments [free drinks, appetizers, and $ discounts]. Our goal is to inspire residents of NYC to close the current 235 million meal gap and end hunger in this city by rounding-up, and having some fun in the process.
Join us in making history – it’s easier than you think!
Ratings and Reviews
BAD APP. Do not give your credit info.
I made an account and linked my most used credit card. Almost immediately after I activated the round up feature to start donating, it stopped allowing me to log in to my account. But the charges to my credit card did not stop. I requested help for a week and did not hear from the developer. Even the password reset didn't work. Finally called my credit card company to block all future transactions with Spare. The dispute specialist even said it was silly giving credit information to a company you don't trust. You've been warned.
This app has such a great concept! As a millennial, I often have charity on my mind but don't have the means to donate or don't know exactly how to write a small valued check to an organization when others are donating so much more. This app lets you make small effortless donations which go to fight a great cause; you don't even know the money is gone! I also really like that you can track how much the city has donated too. And not to mention the rewards! Love this app!
Great App, Great Feeling
Spare is a very well-crafted app which has a relatively simple premise: with your spare change you can make a measurable impact on the meal gap in New York City. The new Leaderboard feature is great.
