Urban farming has been proposed as a key strategy for policymakers looking to improve global food security. Indoor farming within cities; vertical farming; and farming that makes use of underutilized spaces within urban environments such as idle land, rooftops, and unused water bodies is seeing increasing interest. Zer0Hunger is involved in pioneering initiatives to empower communities to grow local vegetables, enough food to share amongst themselves & the community.
Hunger is often not a food problem; it’s a logistics problem. Approximately 15-30% of food in emerging economies is wasted. Zer0 hunger aim to create food banks to acquire & manage donated food much of which would otherwise be wasted from food manufacturers, farms, retail stores, consumers and other sources, These will be rechanneled back to those in need through an established network of community agencies,
ZER0HUNGER is a platform created to systematically address hunger in Malaysia. Hunger spots are mapped out via a customised geolocate hunger map with the number of people of downloading and using the app. We are part of the MATCH hub; a public and private sector mechanism, leading the Food Security cluster .
UN reports 851 million people goes to bed hungry every night and an increasing number of people living on hunger globally, another 130 million people could be pushed to the brink of starvation by the end of 2020 connected to the COVID-19 crisis. Our vision is to use information technology to locate and help those who are in hunger due to lack of income and savings.
The technology we build allows us to create visual awareness of hunger spots thus centrally centrally coordinating efforts to mitigate duplication and enhance efficiency and effectiveness of relief operations. In addition, it allows us to execute on demand food aid to beneficiaries, transparent verified beneficiary profiling, avoiding duplication or scams. The data and information we receive from multiple data sets goes to connecting funding partners to verified information, with regional and global scalability that meets UN Sustainable Development Goals.
