We are a team of UC Berkeley students collaborating with local Berkeley restaurants & grocery stores to combat two major issues: Student Hunger & Food Waste. According to the USDA's Economic Research Service, Americans throw away $165 billion of food each year. 40% of food is wasted in the United States every year, amounting to 35 million tons of food. The Berkeley News recently stated that, "across the UC system, 44 percent of undergraduates and 26 percent of graduate students say they are food insecure, meaning they experience reduced food intake or disrupted eating patterns at times due to a lack of money and other resources." These issues come hand in hand in FedUp: an app that allows students to purchase goods that would other wise be wasted at a discounted price.
