Independent restaurants and web entrepreneurs team up to fight hunger with great deals. Launches Concept in Columbus to support Mid-Ohio Foodbank

COLUMBUS, February 25, 2010 – Fudha (, is pioneering a unique way to connect people heading out to restaurants with good deals for a good cause – fighting hunger.  The Columbus Ohio based internet startup offers discounts from the best locally-owned restaurants in the city, donating revenue from every meal to support families served by the Mid-Ohio Foodbank.

Fudha offers members one dining deal a day (which can be used like a coupon), until time runs out or the maximum number of deals is sold (whichever comes first), and then they offer a new deal the next day. Membership is free at the Fudha website For every Fudha sold (that’s what they call their deals), the site donates $1 to the Mid-Ohio Foodbank.
Local Internet entrepreneur and foodie, Tanisha Robinson, founded Fudha.  The site features deals from many local dining favorites including Betty’s, Due Amici, and Bodega.
It’s one thing to get a good deal. It’s another to get a great value at a place where you love to eat and know that you are giving back to the community,” Robinson explains.We want our customers to check out the deals daily, and to have an easy way to give to families who need it most.
Fudha will host a launch party and fundraiser for the Mid-Ohio Foodbank at Barrio (Spring + High) at 1:00p on February 28. The first deal will be live on the site March 1 at noon.
