At other times businesses may be in this place and try to create a business to make money and help people.It is precisely what the Free Food wants to create.In addition to people exchange, share and donate food.O freeFood believes it can expand the concern for self sustainability of feeding.The houses could have their own gardens and exchange your vegetables with neighborhoods.This is just one example of the possible application of the idea. The reality is that there are several examples.
Another idea that is too strong is the map of hunger.The freeFood want to map the locations where there is more need to receive food.The target audience are people who are in extreme poverty or in need of urgent food.So people who have food available can be voluntary help.The motivation to help people is to strengthen the human being and to society.

The main economic trend of the 21st century is the collaborative economy. When connecting unknown with common interests and needs, social networking applications and facilitate for sharing and exchange of services and objects on an unprecedented scale.
For this reason, who assigns the collaborative economy the power to reduce waste, increase efficiency in the use of natural resources, combat consumerism and to reduce social inequality in the world.
But there is no doubt, for now, the power of collaborative economy to foster the sharing based businesses. Proof of this is that the Airbnb platform - offering vacant rooms and rental properties Rentals - now has a market value higher than the big hotel chains such as Hyatt. Only in 2015, the collaborative ventures handled over $ 110 billion worldwide, according to Forbes magazine.

So the collaborative economy is a new trend and we can apply this to feeding. So how would be the dynamics of the food trade on this new economy? In this new environment that Freefood wants to act changing the current paradigms of feeding.
