Redistribution of Food Waste

Ph.D. students Rhonda Hoenigman and Caleb Phillips created algorithms to design efficient agricultural landscapes and redistribute food waste, in collaboration with the BioFrontiers Institute.With the help of this algorithm, the organization that Phillips founded, Boulder Food Rescue, takes surplus foods from stores and restaurants, and delivers them immediately to organizations that will use them. The kicker: Boulder Food Rescue picks up and delivers food using bikes and trailers, keeping costs at their lowest. More information can be found here.
