what about sinking the whole room underground? Does this eliminate the need for the solar powered element at all? Would this cause problems with flooding?

I really like this idea, it's highlighting an awful problem- but I wonder about where exactly you can get the food from? Do you mean you want to buy up all the food that is discounted at the end of the day and purchasing the food that isn't pretty enough- these both seem like good ideas.
In the writing before the 5 step process you say that you want to use the food that supermarkets throw away- I'm not sure about this as a source. In the UK for example some supermarekts are so worried about being sued by people who eat out the bins..then get sick..then sue them...that they pour bleach on the food, or just lock the bins..It would be interesting to see if it was possible to interrupt the system so that instead of

1 broken egg>entire box destined for the bin>box of 11 good eggs in the bin
to
1 broken egg> 11 eggs removed from box, set aside> 1 bad egg in bin

oh that's such a good addition! It's also great because people can learn how much a portion size is by seeing and doing, not just being told something arbitrary like "30g" which needs to be weighed out. I'll add you to the team!
