Problem: Food businesses trash or compost excess consumable food because they don't see another option. Infrastructures are not available (either do not exist or have low resources/capacity) to help distribute excess food to people in need.
Solution: Connect restaurants and grocery stores who have excess food to businesses that distribute food to people in need. A game that rewards people for transporting packages of food could help bridge this gap.
The idea is that gamers would receive a notification based on their proximity to a restaurant that communicates they have excess food. The gamer could accept the challenge, transport the food, and then get points for completion.
The idea capitalizes on the movement that’s currently happening with PokemonGo. It would be a great opportunity to partner with them or create a local, community-based app that provides discounts or perks for helping within your own neighborhood.
