The food pantry at Georgia Tech, Klemis Kitchen, is the main food assistance program on campus which provides both undergraduate and graduate students who could not afford balanced meals with free food items. However, Klemis Kitchen has long been lacking an online presence and relying on emails for communicating with its users. We designed an app to provide students with a digital experience to enroll in the service, check the availability of the food items and engage in the Klemis Kitchen community as a whole.

First-time users are able to browse what services Klemis Kitchen offers, submit the enrollment form, pick their dietary preferences all at one place.
Users could easily see how much food is left in the pantry from the color-coded labels "Plenty""Limited" and "Out of Stock" on the main page. They could also check the nutrition facts and whether the items meet their dietary restrictions in detail.
To support long-term food security and healthy eating, we provide users with various recipes based on the available food in the pantry.
Interactions between Klemis users are supported by the "Community" tab where users chat in threads, making admin announcements effortless and creating a sense of community to empower students suffering from food insecurity.
