SKOUT Feeds 20K Hungry People In Food Bank Partnership

“Virtual gifting within our app is very popular and we enjoy creating ways to leverage this feature to make a difference in our local community… We’re excited to partner with the SF-Marin Food Bank and give back to the community where we live and work,” were the enthusiastic words that Christian Wiklund had about the launch of a free service SKOUT is now offering through the SF-Marin Food Bank. This important charity feeds over 20,000 of the most needy.

Mr. Wiklund is the CEO and co-founder of SKOUT, a company that has had a very popular social connection app for smartphones that has been out for a few years now. Both his company and the food bank are based in San Francisco. SKOUT is also the name of the application, available world wide to assist everyone with increasing the size and quality of their social circles as they live a 21st century, mobile life. He invented a great way to help his hungry fellow human beings by dedicating profits from online activity on March 14th, which is National Potato Chip Day.

Paul Ash, the SF-Marin Food Bank’s Executive Director, said of the partnership with SKOUT: “People are facing a rapidly shrinking margin between their income and expenses… Just as we have done at the Food Bank, SKOUT is using technology and creativity to help end hunger. We’re happy to be working together towards a community where everyone has enough to eat.”

For a safe and easy way for people everywhere to meet and get together, SKOUT is the app to get. It is the largest platform used by more people than other social media, available in a total of 16 languages, and in well over 180 countries spread over the whole Earth. SKOUT was started in 2007 with capital supplied by Andreessen Horowitz. Their business web page is Skout Home Page.

The SKOUT app supplies ‘Points’ to buy expanded functionality, like a list of who has read your SKOUT Profile. It is an app that has paid off with multiple versions of the app for iOS smartphones and SKOUT is available through Google Play and The App Store. A full 70% of their users reside in other countries vs. a mere 30% from the U.S.A. This was originally released on PR NewsWire.
