StopFoodWastage App is Live
16 Nov 2018 Posted in Press Releases
As one of the pillars of Coding for Community regarding technological innovation with a social focus, we have developed an app called “Stop Food Wastage” which is now available on Google Android and Apple iPhone.
Our app connects restaurants and charities in the local Atlanta community so that restaurants with excess food can easily post their leftovers. Once these leftovers are posted, nearby charities and food pantries are notified of the posting via the the “Stop Food Wastage” app interface. The charities and food pantries can then claim the food and distribute it to those in need. Thousands of tons of food are wasted unnecessarily every year in our country, and any effort to redirect this food towards the nourishment and care of these underprivileged children is extremely beneficial. We hope this app will be the first step in remediating food insecurity in Georgia, and ultimately, the United States.
