How Might We Reduce Food Waste in Our Community?
Ideo.org & + Acumen
Being in San Francisco I wanted to learn more about Human-Centered Design. What is HCD? Learn more watching this video:
So I participated within a team to a Ideo.org +Acumen Design Challenge. Our transcontinental team ( USA, Europe, India, Middle-East) chose to work on a pre-crafted challenge to figure it out "How Might We Reduce Food Waste in Our Community? "
Between harvest and consumption, an estimated one-third of food spoils or gets thrown away. Post-harvest loss can occur anywhere along the value chain—storage, transport, processing, packaging, at-market, or at home. Consider how we might reduce food spoilage along the value chain, lessen the amount of food thrown away, or introduce new value to crops through processing or financial models. As part of this design challenge, you and your team will design solutions to reduce food loss, with the added bonus of the Amplify program behind you.
1. RESEARCHES IN SAN FRANCISCO
I decided to start my researches at a urban level, interviewing people living in San Francisco and visiting locations in the city.
2. RESEARCHED IN MY OWN COMMUNITY: A CO-OP HOUSE
Then I decided to focus on my on community. I live in a co-op house with more than 40 roomates. We are all sharing food. I wanted to see how we could improve and reduce our waste food in a place where people are already aware of this kind of issue.
