Inspiration A lot of people are starving in the rural and remote parts of the world. They don't have a basic necessity which is FOOD! Food is essentially the key to survival. Almost 1 in 9 people around the world don't have proper food and die from malnutrition. At the same time, in all the metropolitan cities, approximately 1.3 billion tons of food is being wasted. I decided to create a web application that takes the unwanted, usable, food from events, parties etc. , and make an easier way to donate the food to food banks and homeless shelters. In order to do that the
What it does
After events like parties, hackathons etc. , the web application lets the user donate food to a homeless shelter or food bank. It shows the user information about nearby homeless and food bank location depending on the food that they are donating.
How I built it
I built it using JScript, HTML and CSS. I used some tutorials and the materials from the workshops to build the web application.
Challenges I ran into
-Figuring out a way to connect all the different parts of the program together. -Understanding the programming language
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Being able to learn a language, use the limited knowledge and create an end product.
What I learned

What's next for DonATE
- Give a larger platform with more data. -Facilitate a facility between the user and the donation center -Create a pick up service for the users in order to pick up their food.
