What is foodoor?
foodoor is a mobile app that helps you to not waste food. Have you ever felt sorry for throwing away perfectly good leftovers - vegetables, fruits, milk or anything else that you just could’t eat? If yes, foodoor is the right app for you. The next time you think of throwing good food away, just use foodoor to snap a picture, write a short description and share it. If one of your neighbours is interested, they will be notified and can come to get the food at a convenient time for you. Don’t worry, only neighbours in your building (or your vicinity, if you choose so) can see what you post.
Who can join foodoor?
Currently we are in a beta stage and foodoor is only available in Vienna, Austria. However, it is for everyone and we are trying to expand as fast as possible. If you want to start using foodoor in your city, please contact us at email@example.com
How much does it cost?
foodoor is completely free. This counts for the app itself, as well as any food that is shared via foodoor. If a users asks for money or any other form of payment, please do not accept the offer and contact us with additional information at firstname.lastname@example.org
Where and when can I get foodoor?
foodoor will be available in the App Store and Google Play Store. If you are interested, you can give us your email address above and we will let you know, when the app is available.
Can I sell food on foodoor?
No, this is forbidden. If you know someone who tries to sell food on foodoor, please contact us at email@example.com
Who can see my offers?
We value privacy. That is why we designed foodoor in a way that by default, you offers are only shared with (and visible to) neighbours within your building. If you want to share with other people, you can change that in the app settings - but that is completely up to you.
Who can see my address? What is shared with other users?
By default, other users can't see your name or address. Only when you share an offer, users in your building will be able to see your name and address, so that they can come and knock on your door. If you want, you can decide to share your food with people around the corner by changing the app settings. Your email address is never shared.
I love your idea! How can I help?
We offer foodoor for free and carry the development, maintenance and any other costs ourselves. So any form of donation or sponsorship is very welcome. If you want to help us grow the community around foodoor or expand to other cities, we have a few ideas how you can help. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
How are you different from foodsharing.de?
foodsharing.de collects larger amounts of food from different organisations and distributes them to publicly accessible refrigerators. Although we love the concept behind foodsharing, we feel there is a need for something complementary on a smaller scale.
A troll posted an obscene image. What should I do?
Just flag the offer in the app and we will take a look immediately. If 3 or more people flag an image as inappropriate, it will be filtered by the app.
