karrot is a web-app to support foodsaving groups worldwide. It supports multiple languages, hierarchy-free groups, group conversations and a sophisticated pick-up organizer.
A bit more background why we started developing karrot in 2016: there are many foodsaving initiatives all over the world, that are getting leftover food from stores, markets and supermarkets. With further growth, they need support with organization.
The bigger goal of the foodsaving worldwide project is to save our common resources as much as possible. We are connected to the yunity network, which promotes unconditional sharing and sustainable living.
Mentors for this project will be Nick Sellen (@nicksellen) and Tilmann Becker (@tiltec), assisted by other members of the karrot team.
The requirements are very much depending on the task that you want to work on. One thing that is common to all: a high degree of self-motivation.
- For designers, you can use a tool of your liking (we prefer Open Source tools) and perhaps use HTML and CSS to implement your designs.
- For planners and communicators, you will learn about the users' requirements and gather feedback via different channels (Slack, E-Mail, Facebook)
Tasks And Features
We have an open development process and will be happy to support your motivation:
- Planning and implementation of new features (frontend and backend)
- Graphic design
- Communication with users
- Devops: learning and improving the development workflow
Some examples of features that you can work on:
- Public locations for food distribution (Food-share points)
- Person-to-person sharing ("food baskets")
- Long-lived conversations
- App and e-mail notifications
- Weekly e-mail with summary of group activities
- Show public and internal statistics about group activities and food pick-ups
- Login via other identity providers (OAUTH etc)
- Add more information to user profile
- Approval process for people who want to join a group (no issue yet)

We are a team from IIITB(India). We have most of the skills required for the above project. Plus, we are also creatively aligned and are especially interested in the design elements of the project.
We also feel very strongly about the project, about 50% of the produced food goes to waste, yet millions are hungry. If we can contribute to the cause, in any form or manner, if only it is by giving our time and skills, we would be extremely happy.
Juhi and Anagha

Hello, I am Tanisha. My team mate Krupa and me are interested in working on this project as this project truly resonates our goal of ultimately developing a platform to help people in our society. Foodsaving is a great initiative to begin with. I have already worked on a number of projects to hep chronic pain patients using VR and have developed a project to help physically disabled people train to use prosthetics.
So we would definitely like to be a part of this wonderful project and would like to know if we can already contribute in some way or the other. Thank you.
