A significant amount of food is wasted everyday by restaurants, caterers, supermarkets, etc. Nevertheless, people in need seek help from organizations collecting and distributing unused but still edible food. Such organizations mostly rely on agreements with regular donors. Access to information about food availability and occasional donors is limited and not systematic, creating logistic bottlenecks.
“BringTheFood” is a web application that allows donors to seamlessly publish offers and easily coordinate collections. Collectors can view the offers in their area on a map and reserve those that are available and schedule pickup directly with the donor.
