About this Project:
This idea of this app derived from the want for better school lunch. We, along with other students, have grown tired of spending our entire school day hungry so we’ve decided to make a change. At first, we thought of an app that would simply bring food to students during their lunch periods. Then, we took into consideration other student’s backgrounds and dietary needs. Which influenced our apps evolvement to what it is today.
If DIG-IN were to be built, students would simply have to download our app, fill out the log in requirements, verify their identifications, and order! Once this is done, their food would be delivered to them directly at school if the order was placed during school hours. QR codes are used to identify both the driver and the students order. Our services also extend to non students yet they don’t come with the same benefits.
