Our Team

Maen

Maen Mahfoud

Founder & CEO

Maen is the CEO and Founder of Replate. Growing up as a Syrian, Maen saw the effects of poor access to food nearly every day. After immigrating to California, he was disappointed to find similar disparities within San Francisco and was inspired to build Replate. Today, he and his talented team aim to solve inefficiency in the food supply chain by matching surplus food from businesses with communities in need. He’s passionate about food waste, food insecurity, and the circular economy (fittingly) but he also loves people, cultures, the beach, and listening to reggaeton and flamenco music.

Donald

Donald Lang

CTO

As Replate’s CTO, Don fixes all the things. He builds new software features, manages technical contributions, and makes sure our applications are always up and running. He joined Replate in 2017, inspired by the opportunity to feed hungry people and help the environment at the same time. Outside of work, Don likes to read and enjoys board games and puzzles. He also is a cat person (the best ones are).

Other hobbies include playing outside, making delicious vegan food, and (not-so) secretly obsessing over postcards and beautiful dishware.

She’s motivated by Replate’s dual environmental and social mission, as well as the commitment to supporting and personalizing the food donation user experience.

When she’s not building models in the architecture studio, chances are she’s daydreaming about her next travel destination, exploring new cities, singing along at live concerts, or watercoloring the landscape.

Software Engineer

Mikias is a volunteer Software Engineer at Replate. He supports the engineering team by improving current systems and developing front end tests. Mikias is inspired to help Replate after working in the service industry where he saw thousands of dishes thrown in the garbage on a regular basis, but then walked by hungry neighbors on his way home. He spends his time mentoring developers, skydiving, hiking, traveling, and eating skittles with popcorn during a movie.
