In an innovative move, online crowdfunding platforms, Donatekart, has decided to use the blockchain technology to bring about transparency in food distribution and to fulfill the national dream of #ZeroHunger. The tech platform is developed by TRST01 (TrayamBhu Tech Solutions) a blockchain-cloud technology company based out of Hyderabad.
Since 2016, Donatekart has been working towards ending hunger. The organisation has successfully distributed over 15 million meals in 93 locations through over 300 campaigns along with partner NGOs.
With the help of blockchain technology to trace hunger and by authenticating the delivery of impact; Donatekart, in its first-of-its-kind program in the world, aims to bring transparency in initiatives related to hunger.
Anil Kumar Reddy, CEO & Co-founder, Donatekart said, “We have plans to deploy a large-scale technology intervention for ending hunger in India. We feel that the blockchain solution implemented on the top of on-ground low-cost distribution systems will be able to address major issues causing poverty. Not only will it track hunger/demand but it will also provide the data which is vital for better planning and distribution systems for the last mile impact.”
“In coming years, we have plans to set up blockchain monitored cloud kitchen and end-to-end Supply chain solutions to trace nutrition level data of meals and for process optimization, cost-quality control and make food more affordable,” he added.
Donatekart has also developed a platform to trace the cooked meal distribution and reporting. This platform is being tested at two relief work food distribution events, at present.
