Zero Contact Food Distribution Application.

Short description

Mobile App system for food & supplies distribution to those in need and ensure that best practices of social distancing.

Description

In response to the rising demand for relief food and supplies during COVID-19 pandemic in Kenya and rest of the World, our company is targeting to develop a Zero Contact Distribution digital Application to enable Governments and other NGOs to distribute food supplies to those in need and ensure that best practices of social distancing are upheld to control the spread of the virus.Our Application shall bring about the need for an efficient way to coordinate the distribution and to minimize contact for all involved.The system allows for an effective food distribution process that is contact-less using a data chain process connecting the provider and the user. This enables us fight Covid-19 while maintaining social distancing ; while at the same time, assist the vulnerable members of our community.
We realized that the traditional paper vouchers, gift cards or large-crowd distribution process wouldn’t work in a COVID-19 environment. Large crowds increase the risk of the virus spreading and paper poses the risk of cross contamination. There was a clear need for a contactless distribution flow. We wanted to create an application that is easy to use, safer for the environment and individuals during the COVID-19 pandemic.
There was a clear need for a contactless distribution flow. We wanted to create an application that is easy to use, safer for the environment and individuals during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our Zero Contact Food Distribution application, has been conceptualized by our company primarily in response to the skyrocketing demand for food relief with government-imposed lockdowns and restrictions to control the spread of the virus. COVID-19 continues to pose a health and economic crisis around the country and an even greater threat to thousands who have lost their livelihoods and those living hand to mouth. The Zero Contact Distribution application promotes coordination and ensures that best practices are upheld during the supply and distribution of relief.Government, organizations or charity bodies who want to carry out a food or distribution program should go to the application’s dashboard and generate the list of individuals they have identified to be in need. They then upload identifying numbers like Telephone or ID numbers they are using in their program into the distribution management system and assign collection points, whether it’s large scale supermarkets, small scale kiosks, or mobile time pickup points for those in remote areas. As this fast-paced, high-stakes crisis evolves, two things are immediately clear. First, we have a duty to mitigate the immediate shocks to the most vulnerable. Second, we must lay the groundwork for recovering livelihoods and rebuilding communities. And we must start now.
