Inspiration- I was always cautious never to waste any food but recently I came to know that more than 1,000 families in my town turn to the local food pantry. After knowing this, I was shocked and inspired to create this website to raise awareness on the topic of food waste and encourage them to donate to the local food pantry.
What it does- It is a website to raise awareness about food waste. It also has action items that the user can do to help reduce the amount of food that is being wasted.
Challenges I ran into- The challenge I ran into was codin
g the action items and having them check-off. But after seeing the Qoom presentation where they showed a checkoff to do list, I got a better sense of how to code it.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of- I am most proud that I was able to complete this website in a short amount of time and use many resources like W3schools to help me. I am also proud that I was able to choose a gradient color for the background and have the website look nice as well.
What I learned- I learned many valuable skills throughout this hackathon that helped me to succeed in making my website. I learned how to make a to do list and change the background color in CSS. I also learned the basics of html and was able to take it a step further.
What's next for Stop Food Waste- The next stop for my website is to share this website with as much people as I know to continue to raise awareness on Food Waste and have people reduce their food wastage. My goal for this website is for the people to become familiar with the issue and be the change. I would also to use this website to help promote the benefits of donating to the local food pantry and make a difference in their community.
