#Jen Network: Open Source Food Recovery Network





Pickup Organization

Food Runner

Food Insecurity

Version 1

  • Reach out to the local communities hoping volunteer Food Runners would use the IOS and Android Mobile App to pick up and drop off food. The App is optimized for distance and proximity just like Uber is. This will help them save time.
  • Reach out to organizations that address the food insecurity issue by receiving food and making it available to those in need.
  • Reach out to organizations that face the issue of having to discard excess food to sign up and make a pick up request that will be addressed by the closest Food Runner.

Version 2

  • Build an AI-powered service geared towards providing insights to pick up organizations if they choose to subscribe as an add-on
  • The insights would be centered around accurate forecasting of “how much food they should prepare on a daily basis?” which does not result in food waste. This would assist them with significant cost savings as they operate their business.
  • The proceeds from the subscription will be used to pay Food Runners for their service per trip.
