FoodU is a tool that allows users to have all of their school or company’s dining information at their fingertips. After downloading the app, the user then selects their location and fills out their profile, which includes their name, allergies and dining preferences, and other information – like if they’re a resident or commuter student, part-time or full-time employee, and so on.
