Students in the 2015 CIS3750 class worked with Meal Exchange – a national charitable organization dedicated to eliminating hunger in Canada – to develop solutions to assist in their annual Trick Or Eat campaign. The Trick Or Eat campaign sees thousands of students across Canada and the United States go door-to-door to collect food for the emergency food system every¬†Hallowe’en.

To assist this process, the students have developed prototypes for a web-based Administrator Portal, a Participant website, and a mobile app.

During¬†the summer and fall of 2016, several students continued developing the apps. They were successfully tested during the 2016 Trick Or Eat event on campus. Since then, development has continued, and the final prototype app is expected to be unveiled at this year’s Food Summit. The apps will have one final round of live testing during the 2017 Trick Or Eat campaign, and are expected to be launched nationwide for 2018.

The development team includes:

  • Matt Jourard
  • Daniel Miller
  • Bradley Gethke
  • Deyvid Mitkov
  • Chris Katsaras
  • Corey Alexander
