" Having a competent team to lead is both motivating as well as daunting. You see the hard work your team puts in and you want to do justice to it in addition to meeting the goals of your organization. That is why I feel it is my duty to pull out every resource I can and provide them with the best leadership and growth opportunities. I feel the Millennium Fellowship is just the place to get that. This opportunity for us as Froods means a greater chance at collaborating with fellow change makers out there, along with an upgrade in our creativity and adaptability needed to solve the problems of food wastage and food insecurity. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Froods
Froods is a student-initiated startup with the goal to redistribute clean, leftover food from restaurants, cafes, marquees, etc. to the underprivileged members of society. With the user-friendly Froods app (under final development stage), Froods plans on bridging the gap between donors, distributors, and recipients by allowing NGOs and volunteers to connect with anyone who wants to donate food. The main goal is to ensure excess fresh food is collected, packed, and distributed to those who have been deprived of it. Alongside this main goal, we strive to nurture a sense of responsibility in society by organizing various donation drives. The Froods App connects NGOs that already distribute food and incentivizes donors such as restaurants and banquet halls who donate fresh food that would otherwise end up wasted, to ensure no one sleeps hungry.
