NEW YORK, May 04, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The winners of Fast Company’s 2023 World Changing Ideas Awards were announced today, honoring sustainable designs, innovative products, bold social initiatives, and other creative projects that are changing the way we work, live, and interact with the world.

Sharebite’s Passport product is a digital payment solution that companies can use to feed employees anywhere they work. Passport is accepted at every dining establishment and food delivery service that accepts Visa®. Clients of Sharebite include global investment banks, financial services institutions, law firms, technology, consumer products, professional sports teams, healthcare, agencies, architecture and consulting firms. Every transaction results in a meal donation by Sharebite to alleviate food insecurity in local communities. Through Sharebite’s partnerships with City Harvest and Feeding America®, the mission-driven company has donated the equivalent of more than 5.6 million meals* to communities in need across the United States.

Fast Company received more than 2,200 nominations for this year's World Changing Ideas Awards. A panel of editors and reporters selected 561 honorees for recognition based on feasibility and the potential for greatest impact.

Sharebite exists to help companies create a better place to work for their employees through meal benefits. In doing so, we are harnessing the collective purchasing power of American companies and using it to drive value back to society and small businesses.

“In over 30 countries across the world, it’s a common practice to provide employees with a daily meal voucher. In the US, employee meal benefits have become the new frontier for HR and total rewards leaders because they have a measurable impact on employee well-being and productivity. Sharebite’s approach is to give companies maximum flexibility because where and how people work is constantly changing,” says Sharebite’s CEO and Co-founder Dilip Rao. “Sharebite is excited to be at the leading edge of this movement, and our mission-driven model is essential to creating sustainable impact, one meal at a time.”

“It’s thrilling to see the creativity and innovation that are so abundant among this year’s honorees,” says Fast Company editor-in-chief Brendan Vaughan. “While it’s easy to feel discouraged by the state of the world, the entrepreneurs, companies, and nonprofits featured in this package show the limitless potential to address society’s most urgent problems. Our journalists have highlighted some of the most exciting and impactful work being done today—from housing to equity to sustainability—and we look forward to seeing not only how these projects evolve but how they inspire others to develop solutions of their own.”
