Yesterday I found $30 worth of good food expired because my roomates and I didn't pay attention to their life span. This hasn't been the first time and I'm certain other university students share my pain
What it does
Keeps track of your food (particularly fruits and vegetables) by telling you when the food will expire and how long you have upon purchase to save it for
How I built it
Using Clarifai API, I managed to use the camera to take photos of groceries. Thus, I can search up expiry dates of foods more easily than typing in.
Challenges I ran into
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
What I learned
What's next for Foodify
I plan on making a web platform for people to exchange almost expired foods. This will reduce waste and give people what they want (sellers get a partial refund and buyers get a great discount)!
