About

More than 23 million people in the U.S live in areas with little to no access to healthy food, called food deserts, but 91% of those below the poverty line have access to the internet. The government spends $94 Billion USD on the EBT system that does not allow the poor to use benefits online for home-delivered groceries, which has worsened food access for the 11.5 million people under the poverty line who live more than one mile from a supermarket. A neighborhood corner store could be closer but have higher prices, a sacrifice hard for a mother to accept when the U.S average monthly food stamp allowance is $125 per month. Studies have found that urban residents who purchase groceries at small neighborhood stores pay between 3 and 37 percent more than suburban residents buying the same products at supermarkets. People should be able to use their food benefits online to buy healthier food at lower prices by utilizing an android app that breaks down the food insecurity barriers and takes advantage of the blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies market. The blockchain is essential for redundancy, verification, secure and valid transactions without the expensive infrastructure of big banks server farms Blockchain takes away a single point of failure and provides a level of security for handling public money that a private database cannot match Eventually a new model will eventually replace EBT and make way for universal basic income that will expand to distributing social services, food credits via our platform. This is our moonshot thinking. This is how this works : https://youtu.be/lxIi4ZIvuQg
