Food For All is an app to help the less fortnuate buy food for less. As food prices increase and poverty rates also go up, its becoming harder and harder for people to buy a life essential like food. However, with my app retailers can post discounted food on the app so that the less fortunate can purchase it. This app can help people in poverty and can help reduce land fill waste while allowing businesses to make extra money. If you enjoyed watching my idea, please support it by placing a vote!

In the Gta alone there are over 5000 homeless people and out of the over 37 million Canadians, 1 in 7 are living in poverty. However ever the inflation rate in Canada is a little over 1.7 Percent which means as the poverty increases so does their inability to afford essentials for living. As we all know food, is essential for life, and many times, people struggle to afford simple things like bread. However there is a solution to this growing epidemic. Yearly an estimates 133 billion pounds of food is thrown away from restaurants alone. Most is usually thrown away because of it not being fresh, not looking good enough to sell or because it doesn't taste right. This food waste is from restaurants alne and isn't including superstores and other retailers that sell food but have to throw it away if its close to its expiration date. So what my solution? My solution is an app to help families in poverty buy discounted food. ON the app, retailers can log on and post food that is about to expire or the food they don’t want anymore.So once the retailers, post their discounted food or food they want to sell, the users of the app can log on, and view the different prices and the pictures and descriptions of the food. They can then reverse it and go to the store to pick up. This business will succeed as not only is this a way for many families to get food for less, but it is also a way for businesses to show social responsibility. By using this app businesses show that they are willing to help the less fortunate which in return can help them market their business as one that is good for the community. The retailers/restaurants that use the app pay a small monthly fee, which in return helps them make profit on food items that was going to be wasted. My Idea is a way to revolutionize the food and consumer industries as it is minimizing food waste, helping businesses profit on food they’d otherwise throw away and it is helping the less fortunate buy food.
