School for Journalism Creates App to Fight Student Hunger

Jason Slabodsky, and his AP Computer Science class at the Secondary School for Journalism in Park Slope, Brooklyn, have been selected as the New York State Champions for the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Contest for their project proposal that will utilize unserved cafeteria food to create “dinner to go” for students to get meals to eat at home. The class is using STEM to design an app that helps solve the issue of student hunger. Students designed the prototype of an app named MOSEY, that would allow students to simply re-serve a “dinner to go” and pick it up after school in the cafeteria. The app will provide data analytics for companies that donate dinner directly to the app.
The project is still underway, however, they now move onto phase 3 along with
the opportunity to win $150,000 for their school. Learn more about MOESY here.
