What it does
While Fresh Bite helps eliminate food waste by providing a well-portioned meal plan to help you get rid of those on-sale groceries you bought in bulk, it also provides a cost-effective solution for lower-income families.
By planning out meals based on the expiration dates of the ingredients, Fresh Bite ensures that your money is well-spent and nothing has to go to waste. It's a win-win scenario.
How I built it
We try to connect Clarifai food recognition API and food2fork recipe search API to deliver a smart picture-to-recipe planner. We used HTML/CSS for frontend development and Node.js/HTML/Express framework for backend development.
Challenges I ran into
We were not very familiar with web development languages and APIs, so it took us a while to pick up those languages and understand how things work!
Accomplishments that I'm proud of/ What I learned
We learned web development on the spot!
What's next for Fresh Bite
We aim to provide more information about freshness of the groceries and their expiry dates through image recognition and NLP, and build our own customer information database and recipe API.
