The team behind FlashFood, a social media-powered network designed to collect excess food for donation, comprises current and former students in the engineering, marketing, and sustainability programs. Eric Lehnhardt, who began working on finding a resolution to food waste as part of an applied engineering class at ASU, was called to action when he learned that Phoenix has the third-highest rate of childhood food insecurity in the country. Nationwide, one in five children goes to bed hungry every night.
