I have been inspired by the food hubs created from the open food network and the potential we have here to buy super high quality food if we were able to collaborate and cherry pick the good* stuff...
* good- local, organic, naturally farmed, fresh.. :)
So, I have been developing https://tinyfood.org and have an app working that lets us share purchases. I'm talking to Alvin at Technowizardy to see about helping to make changes to the software so it creates farmer landing pages, and ensures that farmers don't edit one anothers' listings. We can use the service now to form a hub and list deals in local stores and markets, so that we may collaborate on purchasing..
other logistical concerns... where we meet and hand off food? Ried Barcus is an uber driver and community activist willing to help with transpo, and we could also rely on door dash or another service to 'virtualize our food hub'.
you can take a look at the demo here: http://tinyfood.herokuapp.com/en/products/carrot-juice-73/
I believe in this project because I consider high quality food access to be a human right, and good relationships between humanity and mother earth to be a right of nature. peace y'all I hope we can do this together.
If anyone loves the idea and has a few extra bucks to donate, donations are tax deductable. Donating time is what really matters, this project is not dependent upon money as much as it is about trust we build for one another and how willing we are to empower one another to live better lives.
