“F.H.O. App - Food Help Organization”
About this Project:
We wanted to design an app that made signing up for food and aid very easy. In order to do this, we needed to reach a wide audience of people coming from different backgrounds and communities. We implemented a translator within our app which allowed people who spoke different languages to interact with our app. In our app, there is a map that contains the location of each individual pantry.
When clicking on each location, the user is given an in depth description of each pantry. This includes what is in stock at the pantry and the exact address of it. The app also has a place where people could donate and sign up to volunteer. We really wanted to make sure that the app is community based.
