We wanted to help people who are unable to provide for themselves or their families. With this site, they can easily find nearby food pantries. Existing sites are cluttered and hard to use, so we wanted to improve on the user experience.

What it does

Lists nearby food pantries in the Champaign-Urbana area. Provides information on these locations such as hours, services offered, and contact information. Presents a clean map view for easy browsing and locating nearby food pantries.

How we built it

We built this site on HTML5/CSS3 for the main structure and Javascript/Jquery for scripting and development.

Challenges we ran into

There were some issues with styling and content aggregation, as well as dealing with the Maps API and documentation.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Creating a modern clean application for finding nearby pantries.

What we learned

We learned more about styling, content aggregation, and how to use HERE Maps API.

What's next for PantryView

Expand services to outside Champaign-Urbana area and offer more listed services.
