Inspiration

According to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), developing countries waste 40 percent food items. Around 1.3 billion tons of food is wasted annually all over the world. By trimming waste and diverting food loss we can alleviate hunger, create jobs, combat climate change, conserve natural resources, and cultivate more sustainable communities.

What it does

Wasting food means not only money down the drain, but also all of the resources needed to grow and distribute that food in the first place. Our mission is to make fresh, nutritious food accessible to everyone regardless of their location or socio-economic status.

How we built it

We used Bootstrap4 and php for backend.

Challenges we ran into

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We believe our platform can end hunger by connecting restaurants and people that have excess food to different neighborhood and charities in dire need of food to feed the underprivileged. This moves nutritious food away from the waste stream and onto the plate of someone in need. Hunger is a distribution problem, not a supply problem. Together, we can solve it.
