The outcomes including the whole system design, the delivery tool and package design and the order application design. This project helps users access to fresh food more easily by saving time for them, it also helps reduce the waste which helps users consume fresh food more efficient, besides, it offers work opportunities for teenagers and it potentially creates social connections between neighborhoods.
