GiftAMeal is a mobile app that helps provide meals to those in need. When a user take a photo at a partner restaurant using the GiftAMeal app, a meal is provided to through a local food pantry. If the user shares the photo on social media, a second meal is provided.

Over 150 restaurants currently participate in GiftAMeal and over 180,000 meals have been provided in St. Louis, Chicago, and Detroit.

Glantz founded GiftAMeal in 2013 while he still was an undergrad. He was recently the youngest person named to the St. Louis Business Journal’s 30 Under 30 List.
