National startup Careit, which is a tech company that makes it easy for businesses + orgs to donate surplus food to nonprofits, became the first to join CO.LAB’s revamped accelerator program.

A subscription to Careit allows users to track food donations data so that information can be used for grant, tax and policy purposes.
