No, I just carried the project through the need-finding stage.  I posted it here to share the insights and if it gathers interest, take it forward!

We were looking for local problems (could also be global problems that had local impact) that could be improved by a small-scale local intervention - something that could be piloted in one town without needing a full-scale overhaul of a larger ecosystem.  In this case, we looked at the problem of food waste in one town and how that particular town could reduce the food waste.  You can imagine (and I think you already have) how a solution to that problem could be easily replicated regardless of location.  

Andrea, that sounds great!  I worked on this topic as part of a class and we brainstormed a few supply chain ideas.  We were looking at hyper local interventions and this seemed to fit the problem.
