A third of all working families are considered low income & over 1.5M people are homeless in the US. About 80K of those homeless individuals are here in NYC. litEats is a hack focused on feeding these individuals by our slogan "PAY IT FORWARD"
LitEats aims to use the pay-it-forward pizza solution in Philadelphia to help the homeless crisis around the world.
What it does
litEats provides a platform for charitable people to make donations to participating vendors to provide free meals to low-income and homeless citizens.
How we built it
We used Vue.js as our Front-End framework and connect
Challenges we ran into
Connecting our Back-End to the Front-End was probably one of the biggest issues once they were basically done. Also with the time constraint we were only able to locally host the project since we were running into issues getting our mySQL database on the Google Cloud Platform.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Our goal was to have a minimal viable product to demo at the end of hackNY, we accomplished that.
