Community Problem Solving Project 1:
Combating food waste & loss, ending food deserts
Since 2018, we have held 16 Fresh Hub events, collecting 10,000 lbs of surplus food and serving 1,400 people living in food deserts. Special thanks to Second Servings and the Houston Health Department for collaborating with us!
What does our event look like?
Fresh Hub Event #11
500 pounds of food from Trader Joe's and Slow Dough were distributed. Harris County Public Health, DentaQuest, Texas Children's Health Plan, and Avenue 360 set up booths at the event to provide navigation and referral services.
Use of Technology
Fresh Hub App
A mobile app was developed by Shirley Zhu, Annie Zhu, Miles Mackenzie and Caleb Hu to efficiently connect the target population and promote a healthy eating style. The app is the winner of 2019 Congressional App Challenge.
Congratulations to the 2019 CmPS Team for the First Place at the International Conference!
