Alley Kitchen / online platform design

Alley Kitchen

Alley Kitchen is a private chef platform run by urban empty nest elderly. Just like Airbnb in Catering that let the elderly come back to society.
When we talk about poor, we usually forget urban elderly, especially nesters, who stay home alone. They depend on low pension, have narrow job market, they lack of companion and suffer a lot loneliness. In the opposite side, urban young workers also feel high pressure and loneliness, living in narrow room, eating takeaway and junk food every day. They want to be cared about and be at home.
That is our opportunity to create a place run by the nesters that can provide this Home-Feeling Experience.
