Many thanks for the kind words A Bin  and Ezgi Sengun  .  Last weekend, I shared Be an Urban Food Rescuer... Pokemon Go style! [UPDATE: Proof-of-concept demo can be tested worldwide using Kricket app] at the InnoASEAN Makers Summit in Singapore, where I was also a guest judge for the SEA Makerthon Grand Finale of young makers from 10 cities presented their projects to address waste across southeast Asia. Received lots of good feedback and support there too! Together, we can make a difference! 


Brian commented on The DC Food Recovery Working Group Model

Thanks josh Singer , and totally agree on establishing scaleable and sustainable models for impact!  Am not sure how far ahead you are on the food runner app development (I tried to find and download the Community Plates GoRescue app but had difficulty finding it) but please feel free to try out the Kricket IOS app which serves as our proof-of-concept regarding the crowdmapping aspects of our platform showing how easily donors can upload photos of their fruit and other perishables onto a map for food rescuers to quickly identify and commit to rescue, and most welcome your input! 

Awesome feedback on the proof-of-concept Ezgi Sengun - would be so pleased to add Australia as a location to foster food rescuers! Which part of Australia are you located?  (I grew up in Perth!) 

Would really welcome feedback from anyone else who has tried out the POC (pre-gamification) app. And do send us screenshots too of local fruit that can be rescued at !  Many thanks!
