November 27, 2018

BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 27, 2018--Appfire announced today that it has launched Feed Three, an entirely new brand of Atlassian apps with a mission to provide children around the world with the essentials they need to live healthy, happy lives. That’s why for every enterprise license of a Feed Three product purchased, Appfire will donate 100% of the profits to help feed three children for a year.

The first product under the new Feed Three brand, Smart Queues for Jira Service Desk (JSD) Cloud, was also released today. This app empowers service desk agents to save time and increase productivity by sorting, filtering, and searching for issues within their Atlassian Jira Service Desk queues.

Appfire chose to focus on hunger for the Feed Three mission for a few reasons:

Based on the Food and Agriculture Organization’s 2018 State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World, 821 million people don’t get the food they need to live a healthy life. The World Health Organization states that 45% of childhood mortality under age five is linked to undernutrition or hunger. According to the World Food Programme, 1/3 of the food produced in the world is either lost or wasted. While hunger is the result of a series of complex issues, the World Food Programme argues that hunger is a solvable problem as there is enough food to feed everyone and no scientific breakthroughs are required.

“ From the very beginning, every major decision we’ve made has been driven by our number one core value — be human, ” said Holly Wright, Director of Marketing, Appfire. “ Helping others is an integral part of operating our business, not merely the result of our success. ”

Appfire has shown their commitment to giving back with the launch of the Feed Three brand, but they’re also long-time members of Pledge 1%, a group of pioneer businesses that pledge to give 1% of their equity, employee time, profits, or product to help their communities.

“ Appfire is an integral part of the Pledge 1% community and a founding member of our Builder Network,” said Amy Lesnick, CEO, Pledge 1%. “ Feed Three is the latest example of how companies like Appfire can leverage their platform to make a positive impact on the world. ”
