Waste no food: A teenager’s bold idea to end hunger
About this video: "When you don’t know where your next meal is coming from, it’s all-consuming. You can’t focus on anything else." Moved by the round-the-block lines he witnessed while working at a food shelter for a school community service project, 16 year-old Kiran Sridhar founded the "shared economy" platform Waste No Food which connects leftovers from dozens of restaurants and grocery stores in the Bay Area directly with shelters for the hungry and homeless. His new app closes the distribution gap between donors and recipients by connecting them directly within seconds.
