Inspiration

Being college students ourselves, we know the struggle of managing time and money while keeping ourselves happy and healthy. Luckily, student clubs and organizations are always hosting food events which are convenient and free. The only problem is students aren't always aware of when these events happen. We wanted to build an app that would help our fellow classmates. And so, Munch was born.

What it does

Munch is a multi-platform application that locates food events happening on campus. Students can sign in with their college email and choose their preference of time, clubs, and food.

How we built it

Using a bootstrap theme on Brackets we were able to edit the html/css and javascript in order to create the kind of website we wanted. Since we were a group of 3, we also used GitHub to collaborate.

Challenges we ran into

Since we're beginner programmers, we came in not knowing how to develop a website. A major part of our site was the authentication using Firebase. We unfortunately couldn't implement this element on our site.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Although our skillset was limited, we joined forces and tried our best to bring this idea alive and had fun doing so.

What we learned

We learned that it doesn't matter how much experience you have, but as you keep working on a project you will come out knowing more than you did before.

What's next for Munch

We hope that Munch launches across campuses in the US and then globally!
