What is Myfreefood? Enlighten me...
The mobile application "Myfreefood" is a very unique Innovation and is the only app that provides a platform for food sharing and free meals every day.
This unique idea is believed to benefit all Malaysians and soon people from all over the world. The project is to reduce the amount of wastage efficiently because of the easy sharing system through this application, this is a peaceful way to share food that is not consumed (in good condition), surplus food and fresh food by simply uploading food information in "Myfreefood" app and users will get notifications and besides people can continue to make requests for the food. Food receivers selected by food givers may continue to take food at a place designated by food givers such as taking their meals at home or meeting in public areas such as shopping malls, petrol stations or any places convenient for both parties to meet.
It is going to be revolutionary within our society, the app will be able to enhance the social relationship among mankind and restore our love towards mankind.
It’s easy for many people to discard food waste as someone else’s issue,
However, the reality is that in the ‘developed world, more than 50% of food waste takes place in our kitchen. In contrast, less than 2% of food waste takes place at the retail store and manufacturer levels.
So, the sad news is we are half the enigma. But the good news is….. this means we can be half the answer! Hence we should work towards 'zero wastage' as we go along with development.
When humans start sharing their food, it will automatically balance up the demand and supply for food. This is because humans consumed what they need to live and if sharing is becoming a trend, thanks to Myfreefood, those in need will have easier access to an overabundance of good food, henceforth will reduce hunger and food waste. This will tremendously clear off landfills and agricultural waste, farmers now can focus on their agricultural land to produce food and time needed to fertile lands cycle and this will be more systematic and manageable. There's no more need to search for other wild fertile lands as the existing allocated land can cater to the demand for agricultural goods. And, will consequently stop the activities such as slash and burn, deforestation, and conversion of wild areas into farmlands. The natural habitats for birds, fish, mammals and amphibians will not be destroyed.
Myfreefood is a sharing platform for all kinds of superfluous food. Food needs water to produce and the volume is immense. If people start using this app it will indirectly reduce the amount of food waste and that means the freshwater used to produce more food will be also reduced.
Small changes make a lot of differences if people can understand the idea of our Myfreefood platform is to induce the habit or culture of sharing should be a way of life.
Thank you very much! Your support is highly appreciated! 😄
