Exceed Solar is developing an app to connect food producers with consumers in order to share, sell or trade food items such as fresh fruit and vegetables.
Our objective is to build capacity in our local food supply to address ongoing food security threats caused by global events such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Concept Behind the APP
Social distancing, lock-downs, food security are all part of the “new normal” we are experiencing as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Under this new reality, people are adjusting to new ways of conducting commerce and interacting with one another in social settings. Our company is addressing the new normal by developing an app that will leverage our collective capacity to produce, trade, share, and sell fresh food within our own community. Not only does this support local producers, it also brings our community together in new ways as we address food security challenges collectively.
How does it work?
The app is free to both buyers and sellers of fresh produce. Sellers can post their product free of charge and can trade or sell directly to consumers, who are also free to use the app. Sellers can be anyone from established producers to one of the many people who are now growing food in their own backyard. We believe in building a community of producers and consumers who can come together in one location to buy, sell or trade locally grown products.
Why are we addressing the challenge of food security?
The COVID-19 pandemic is the latest example of how global events can directly impact our food supply. Increasingly, food security is becoming a significant concern for all of us, and we can see how easily our food chain can be disrupted. Exceed Solar is tackling the problem by launching a new app designed to address food security by leveraging the collective strengths of community food production. We seek to bring buyers and suppliers of fresh produce to a single app, allow them to share, sell and trade their products to further strengthen our community’s ability to withstand global food shortages.
We want your feedback!
To make the app successful we depend upon input from the community. If you have a question, an idea, or any feedback on our project we would love to hear from you. Exceed Solar is giving away 5 free t-shirts to those who provide feedback and enter our draw.
