Hi Audrey,

Thank you for the response. I was in the bay area a few months back for business and seeing the issue nationwide really puts it into perspective. I'd be happy to have a call to discuss it further and potentially partner. Please reach out to lgrimm@jeefoods.org so we can set-up a time. Good luck!

Hi Audrey,

Great project! I am from a food bank (JEE Foods) in Ohio that has the exact problem you are describing. Our organization uses food rescue and there is always a fluctuation in donations. We are a student powered non-profit that noticed the same issues in the very beginning. In addition our city is considered a food desert. I would highly recommend looking into the online platform Food Rescue US. That is the current platform we use. It allows organizations, donors, and community members to connect. The donor adds food and the system automatically connects it to a recipient (organization). Community members sign up for runs, so they become the ones doing the transportation of the food. I think it would beneficial for you to look at their systems and see what innovations you can make. If you ever would like to talk about the issues food banks face or how we utilize Food Rescue please reach out! Here is a link to our entry that explains what we do a little bit better as well, https://network.changemakers.com/challenge/tmochangemaker2019/community-review/jee-foods

Hi Abhay,
What a great idea! Being from a food bank I can see the wide applications of your project. So many times organizations like ours struggles to receive technology, it is costly and takes money away from our programs. A donation of computers and other technology would be very helpful. I can also see how your project could impact technology education. Students nowadays need the computer skills and hands on learning is the best kind! I wonder how you could incorporate your project into the diversion of e-waste? In addition, where are you planning on getting the computers donated from? All in all I really like your idea, keep up the great work!
