We wanted to build something that help tackle the problem of food waste. Whilst researching for ideas we found that the use of food banks have been of increasing use, especially for people of low income (as a result of increasing benefits cuts). As a result there has been a rise of children in poverty through out the past year. This is especailly disurbing as hunger can impact a child and their education and therefore low income families can fall into what is known as the poverty trap .
What it does
Our food sharing platform provides an easy solution to reduce food waste while helping to prevent hunger in low income families. Often people find themselves with excess ingredientsthat would go to waste, therefore our platform allows these people to post their excess ingredients where those in need can easily shop for them.
