Abstract: In 2016, it’s been revealed that 1 in 6 Australians had to deal with food insecurity in the past 12 months [1]. 33% of those who sought food relief were children. Overall, 8% of increase in people who sought food relief is recorded in 2015. Another report has revealed that 795 million of world’s population are undernourished [2]. Food insecurity has both physical and psychological impacts on a person’s life which could be short term or long term. Tiredness, loss of weight, loss of focus, exposure to illnesses are some of the physical impacts, and stress, loss of confidence, sadness and loss of hope are some of the psychological impacts on a person’s life [1]. In contrast, few other studies have released staggering statistics on food loss and waste both locally and globally [3-5].This clearly indicates that if food loss and waste can be managed efficiently, it will have a large impact in reducing the number of people who are undernourished. Our critical analysis on popular existing non-ICT based systems, ICT based systems and different scenarios has exposed their short comings, strengths and approaches towards dealing in reducing food waste. This paper proposes a novel approach towards efficient food waste reduction via an IoT enabled dynamic and real-time match-making system which addresses the strengths and shortcomings identified in the above mentioned analysis. A Smart Food Container/Smart Container containing different sensors is designed to capture real-time context of food donations made available by the vendors1, to facilitate sharing with consumers2. Although the concepts are proposed for the Food Wastage Management (FWM) domain, our approach can be adopted, customized or extended to manage other resources as well. The structure of this paper is as follows. Section 2 summarizes the strengths and weaknesses of existing ICT based food wastage management systems. The third section describes the overall conceptual architecture of the proposed framework. In the fourth section, we take a deep look into the concept of a Smart Container, a prototype and some results are presented as well. In the final section, a conclusion and future work are presented which foresights the evolution of our proposed system.
