Dibbs is the real-time platform connecting excess food from local grocery stores to the local food agencies, dedicated to eliminate food waste and fight hunger. Currently, 25 million tons of food at the retail level are thrown away, while 1 in 7 people in Champaign County are food insecure. With the huge amount of food waste and hunger per day, we are determined to change the current situation through a real time usable technology platform to connect relevant business and organizations.
Our team consists of students with different backgrounds in engineering, food science, and user interface design, based on the United States. Everyone in our team cares about food waste and food insecurities and try to save what we are able to save and help more people. We believe that TFF will provide with a broader view of people from around the world and more opportunities to work in different areas and help more people.
