🌴 About the Palm Beach Tech Hackathon 2020 Entry 🏝

πŸ€” Why

52 million tons of food end up thrown away. 30-40% of food produced in the US, $218b worth, end up in the garbage. It's an odd, paradoxical world when businesses are paying to get rid of food while others are paying to acquire it so they can give it away. We think tech can help with the logistical problems.

πŸ” What
