Food Machine / expirefoodvendingmachine

Food Machine

Design Concept :
The latest United Nations report shows that more than 8.2 billion people worldwide suffer from drought, food insecurity and malnutrition. Therefore, we aim to achieve the destination of zero hunger in the world through setting up "vending machines" for nearly-expired food at the entrances of convenience stores. The "vending machines" sell food over 50% off with the expiration of the same day, also, 90% of the profit will be donated to the "Action Against Hunger, ACF". For one thing, people can help the starvation groups by real currency; for another thing, it is efficient for us to solve the problem of over-wasted food.
