GiftAMeal, based in St. Louis, Missouri, was the 2023 grand prize winner, receiving $25,000 to invest into its business. The business donates a meal to a family in need each time a guest takes a photo of their order from a partner restaurant. Each month, over 40,000 meals are provided through 70 local food banks in 35 states. GiftAMeal used the 2023 grant to fuel their nationwide expansion, empowering them to reach new communities and make a greater impact.

“We could not be more appreciative for this recognition,” said Andrew Glantz, founder and CEO of GiftAMeal. “The Amazon Business grant allowed us to continue to serve underrepresented communities and provide meals to people who need it the most.”
