We wanted to create this project because of the amount of wasted food that restaurants in NYC throw out on a daily basis.
Our project provides a platform that allows restaurants from all over NYC to get connected with homeless shelters so that they have the opportunity to donate food instead of wasting it. There is also a point system to provide incentive for restaurants to donate; if there are sponsors for this, the points can be traded in for a small amount of money.
Some challenges was how to establish the server and database of the site.
Learned how to use node.js to establish the back-end of a website.
