As more people can't afford food during these harsh times, we wanted to help these people get food from food banks using our website. At the same time, we wanted to help supermarkets reduce on the amount of food they waste because of their expiry and we wanted to help food banks replenish their food stocks.
What it does
Our website allows individual donors, supermarket donors, food banks, and recipients to sign up. Individual donors can find food banks to donate their unpackaged food, supermarkets can create batches of products they want to donate and publish it on the website for food banks to see and request a pickup for these items, food banks can request and collect food from supermarkets and also create a batch of products for recipients to see what they have in stock, and recipients can see what food items food banks are providing and register the products they want and collect them.
How we built it
We used HTML, CSS, JS, SQLite, and Python.
Challenges I ran into
One of the main challenges was dealing with batch, which was hard to update and connect to the database.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We were able to create a fully functioning website and incorporate all of the features we wanted (except for some styling and info of the homepage).
What I learned
We learned all about SQLite and Python Flask and how to make a website with them.
What's next for Food For Everyone During COVID-19
We will make an actual logo :) and make the homepage have info. We will also add a delete button so that people who need to add batches can delete products they accidentally added.
