While thinking about local problems to target we made a connection between food that gets wasted through vendors restaurants etc and the homeless people that struggle daily to feed themselves.
What it does
It enables homeless people to text a number and get linked to a restaurant in our database they can get food from.
How we built it
We used laravel to build the front-end website with sql working the restaurant database, while twilio studio handling the text related stuff.
Challenges we ran into
Connecting twilio to our sql database for restaurants. (Still working on this)
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Coming up with an idea that is non-profit and benefits the community.
