App Alerts Shelters When Restaurants Have Extra Food To Donate

App Alerts Shelters When Restaurants Have Extra Food To Donate

Flashfood cuts down on food waster and works to end global hunger.

Plus Aziz

Food waste and hunger are serious problems that lie adjacent to one another. One is driven by over-abundance while the latter is driven by the prevalence of poverty. Flashfood is an app created by Arizona State University students that lets restaurants, cafes, etc. alert local charitable organizations that they have extra food that the organizations can pick-up for local shelters.

By using smartphones and technology that app can address a small part of the hunger crisis, by alerting interested recipients when there is new food for donation, and cutting down on the needless disposal of perfectly edible food. Watch the video below to see the students’ walk-through demonstration of the app.
