Code for PGH: Food Hackathon!

  • Code & Supply Community Center 5648 Friendship Avenue Pittsburgh, PA, 15206 United States (map)

We're partnering with the Pittsburgh Food Policy Council and 412 Food Rescue to make a food access tool and work with food donation data! Come learn about the projects,* form teams, and start creating things for these wonderful organizations. Representatives from both organizations will be present to discuss these projects and work with the teams.

* Quick pitches:

1. Create an interactive tool which includes a map that will help food access organizations plan their efforts and hungry people find affordable, fresh food.

2. Create a natural language processing tool which would allow food donors to report what they have to donate in plain English, then translate that into quantities, units, and food types that 412FR’s matching algorithm can use.
