The objective of this project is to design and create a web app to ease the process of connecting the public to food pantries

A Kepler-level Web Development project led by Nurudeen Agbonoga in collaboration with Jason Lai.

Student Team: Adith Gangalakunta, Emily Simkovich, Saurav Rout and Joanna Jia

Sponsoring Patron:

Began: June 29, 2020

Project Summary: Food banks and food pantries have been essential to helping people in need, and In the wake of COVID-19 it is no surprise more people need access to the services these institutions provide. COVID-19 has brought about many complications with acquiring and distributing food, such as disruptions in supply chains, reduced staff due to health concerns and many more.

With this app we hope to make it easier for the public to have access to food pantries and to allow low-contact distribution through scheduling
