Inspiration

About 30-40% of our food supply is wasted, and 1 in 5 people go to sleep on an empty stomach. We seek to bridge this gap.

What it does

Allows restaurants to notify food banks when they have a surplus of food that they would like to donate, instead of throwing away.

How I built it

Built an online database that would gather this information, and be updated through the Android app. The app sends notifications to registered local food banks to facilitate pick up.

Challenges I ran into

Prototyping the idea, and integrating API's like Postmates to automate delivery/pickup.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

We were able to develop a viable product.

What's next for Foodings

Launching this into the real world, and coming up with a webapp for non-Android users.
