Food insecurity affects about a quarter of the world's population and more than 80 percent of US food banks are serving more people now than they did a year ago. How can we apply technology towards these challenges?

See four apps addressing food insecurity in action during this Public Good App House event. Explore solutions for volunteer scheduling, distribution, route planning, and managing inventory.
