Hi Courtney Gonzales  - great idea! I love how you are involving the local government in the process of food recovery. Have you considered partnering with 3rd party professional food rescue organizations like  foodrunners, and food recovery network. If yes, what do you envision the nature of this partnership?

Hi Brian Tang Thank you for your comment! Pokemon Go is a brilliant way to incentivize people to recover food. To answer your question, we will be running both platforms. Perhaps we can collaborate on the marketplace piece. While I think this is great way to bring awareness to the issue of food waste, I doubt how effective would it be to make people recover food because the recovery process could be a tedious task. But hey! Never understatement the power of the crowd!  Let's talk. Should I use the email you contacted us on our website? Hooman - feel free to expand here

Kate Rushton You got it! Please let us know if you have any more questions.
