According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, in the United States alone, Americans waste $160 billion of food, which is nearly 30 to 40 percent of the entire U.S. food supply. At the same time, one in eight Americans struggle to put enough food on the table.

Mission Statement

To promote food sustainability by encouraging food waste reduction and facilitating food exchange.

What it does

Foocycle allows users to post about unwanted food items or leftovers within communities

How we built it and Challenges we ran into

We created the proof of concept using Mongodb and the front end using HTML, CSS, Javascript. We originally planned to create the app using the MERN(Mongodb, Express, React, Node) stack but ran into difficulties connecting the front end with the back end since this was our first time working with all of the technologies.

What's next for Foocycle

We would like to create the app using the MERN stack and implement new features such as user authentication, user communication, reviews, and statistics.
