The United States wastes 1/3 of the food it produces. In grocery stores, a large quantity of its food products gets thrown out. We initially thought the solution was in the hands of just the grocers.
We realized this is a two-person problem
The app Food for Thought connects volunteers with food donors. It
allows volunteers to find food pick-ups that work with their availability, schedule
food pick-ups through the app, and and get directly in contact with donors.
It’s a two-person process
STEP 1: Donors – Post your food donations.
STEP 2: Volunteers – Find a donor that fits your needs. Send a pick-up request.
STEP 3: Donors: Accept their request and await the date.
STEP 4: Volunteers: When the time comes, head on over there
Mission: Complete. How Food For Thoughtful!
User testing with paper prototypes showed us:
How can donors best see they have a pick-up request?
When filling out request or post information, is all info needed?
Users weren’t sure what to do next after making a post. Then what?
Do donors having one-time posting vs weekly ones create confusion?
