Inspiration: About 40% of all food produced in the US is wasted, mostly at the consumer level. Thinking about the kind of waste we each produce, we realized that most of what we throw away comes from bits of food that were either doing bad or other parts that we normally would not use in recipes. We have tried to look up recipes before, but we could never find them all together. The Scrap Saver app will help eliminate this frustration by bringing all of this information together in one place.

What it does: Scrap Saver is designed to help the common household convert normally discarded food into nutritious and delicious recipes. It also allows you to find alternative usages for spoiling items.

How we built it: The app was built using

Challenges we ran into: Going into this project, none of us had any experience with app building. This entire process was full of learning curves.

Accomplishments that we're proud of: The fact that we could create this app using the feedback from our community is a great accomplishment to us. With little time, we came up with a prototype type, and many people feel that this could be a helpful product. We are proud to be a part of the solution!

What we learned: Working on this project, we learned about the value of individual and community contributions both to come up with this concept and to execute it. Our research gave us a better understanding of the effect of household food waste on the environment.

What's next for Scrap Saver: Hopefully, we will win this competition next! From there, we hope to make this app a hit, available on both IOS and Android, sharing this with as many users as possible.
