How one software engineer is using an app to fight hunger in Nigeria
Chowberry uses cloud-based software to provide retail merchants with data on any soon-to-expire food in stock. This allows food nearing the end of its shelf life to be discounted, acquired, and distributed by charities, orphanages, and non-profit organizations rather than simply tossed out.
"On one hand we help reduce food waste at the retail and consumption site, and other hand we facilitate the redistribution of those products that would have otherwise gone to waste to underserved communities and people who are facing food poverty."
By democratizing these resources, Ekponimo explained how Chowberry is able to empower low-income earners and households that are underserved. With the app's deep discounts users can spend as low as $50.00 to feed 50 people.
