Covid-19 has had many detrimental effects on our society. One of the hardest-hit sectors is the local f&b business. We felt that if we could do something that might increase orders for them, perhaps we could help them tide through this period, and in future, they could still continue benefitting from this initiative.
At the same time, as seen from the move to applaud our frontline workers in Singapore a month ago, we felt that the public is willing to show their appreciation for frontline workers, but most of them are unaware of platforms to do so.
By gelling these two problems together, we want to create a way for the public to be able to show their appreciation for our frontline workers by buying a meal for them, which at the same time, helps to increase revenue for our struggling local f&b businesses to tide them through this period.
What it does
The platform allows donors to donate credits to our partner organisations (hospitals). For the initial phase, we choose to focus on healthcare workers as they are the ones in the limelight right now, which could significantly help in bringing this initiative to fruition.
F&B businesses can list up to 3 set meals on our platform, with minute listing fees and negligible commission fees, something in which no other food listing platform is offering.
These healthcare workers can then log onto the platform through SingPass to select set meals from our f&b partners, with the meal fully paid for by the donations. F&B partners thus enjoy an additional stream of revenue.
Donors will be notified how their donations have been used
How we built it
Frontend We then built our frontend in react as react is a powerful library that enables the building of responsive and professional web applications.
Putting them together We split our team into 2 with one group focusing on the frontend and the other focusing on the backend after we finished discussing the overall structure of our application.
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
What we believe to be a professional-looking website considering that we wanted to develop an MVP and not a fully-fledged website. We are proud that we remained focused on the core features of the application to ensure that we could finish in this short time frame. We are proud that we looked at our product from different perspectives as we built it, such as from the various user groups' perspectives.
What we learned
Most of us are first-time hackathon participants and we discovered that although hackathons are quite mentally and physically exhausting, they are without a doubt fulfilling in the sense of building a product that you believe in with people you trust and care about. We all learned more about web development and working as a team to develop a product with a tight deadline.
What's next for Kam Sia SG
We hope that our application idea will be picked up by either the government or a private enterprise and that they will further develop on our idea and make it the best it can be and contribute to society in the way that we envisioned.
