Hi Anne-Laure Fayard! Your post on Skipchen made me think of a story I heard on the radio about the restaurant Freegan Pony in Paris. It's similar to Skipchen in that it uses food that otherwise would be thrown out at local markets to make delicious meals, and customers pay what they want/can afford. From what I can tell Freegan Pony is less focused on feeding the needy and more on changing the conception of food waste.  Both are important goals and I hope to see more restaurants/food ventures like Skipchen and Freegan Pony!

Hi eldy wullur ! I saw that Lou-Ann C had a similar idea about planting mosquito-repelling plants. Perhaps you two can work together on your idea!

Hi Lou-Ann C! I like your idea. Distribution of such plants in low-income, at-risk communities could be combined with additional information about the symptoms and treatment for various mosquito-borne viruses.
