Blockchain Princeton’s Summer Project

Blockchain Princeton…. The Challenge.

Develop an agile & transparent network for connecting surplus foods & supplies to communities in need.


Scope of the Problem

For our summer project, we are limiting the POC to a small number of local farmers with excess food supplies,  limiting the pickup dates  (two pick up dates in August ) to be picked up by transportation volunteers who will transport food supplies to agreed upon drop off point 

Blockchain Princeton is comprised of a diverse group of area Blockchain Enthusiasts who want to leverage this new technology for Social Good.
