Our inspiration for Shifter derived from when one of our members mentioned that he worked at a restaurant. He saw firsthand how much food was being thrown out simply because it was not feasible to store or donate. It seemed so wasteful and harmful to the environment when there are people who are hungry right here in our city. We sought after a solution to all these issues.

What it does

Shifter provides a practical way for restaurants to donate their leftover food to local soup kitchens.

How we built it

Our team built the website using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. We also used a Firebase database to store account information and posts.

Challenges we ran into

As inexperienced programmers, our team encountered plenty of technical issues and bugs when building the website.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We are proud that our website has expected functionalities we implemented.

What we learned

We've learned much about how HTML, CSS and JavaScript work together to form a website.

What's next for shifter

Our team plans to take shifter to the next step by starting on various social media platforms, and adding more secure functionality to our current code.
