Collaborative Consumption: Food EditionUtilizing the "What's Mine is Yours" idea from Collaborative Consumption as inspiration, this idea involves neighborhoods (who may already have a swapping or sharing system in place) to expand or create their swapping habits to include food.
However, with quickly perishable items this may be difficult to implement. I would like to recommended that for quick implementation (which could of course be improved upon in the future) communities utilize a social media tool, such as Facebook and create a page for their those who live in the community. To this end it will not be necessary to build a third party platform and try to draw people's attention. All community members will receive the message, and with the increasing use of mobile phones, could potentially pick-up the item on their way home from work, for example, or run over to their neighbor's house to pick-up the item instead of running to the store, both costly in time, energy and money.
