Smartphones are increasingly integrated with everyday uses. It utilize for various activities like e -commerce, social media, a messaging, a chart and map location application. A problem of waste food becomes a critical issue and it affect the social and environmental problem. Every time food is wastage the other sources water, energy, time, manpower, land, fertilizer, packagin g and mainly money is also wasted. Food waste is big problem in India and it directly affect to the financial benefits. When huge quantity of food goes wasted instead of hungry mouths, it ends up in landfill means ultimately contributing to global warming by releasing methane gas. According to survey 40 percent of food is wasted from hotels and restaurant, marriage fun ction, family function and household estimated that millions of rupees food is wasted every year in a country. Yet millions of people are h ungry and in need of nourishment to overcome this problem we are proposing to new idea to facilitates the exchange in web based services here charity can easily find, secure and then deliver food to those who need it. This is the client-server GIS and Smartphone application for the hunger free city. At the client side App provide facility to donate food to the charity for the help of hungry people. Donors enter basic information like quantity of waste food and type of waste along with latitude and longitude value and contact number. Charities can pick up that waste food and deliver food to hungers. Charities can mapped onto Google map with the help of GIS location based services using GIS coordinate (latitude and longitude) value. Completion of registration will placed onto server database where charities can store the entries of donor in table format and shows the optimal path between donor locations to nearest charity along with direction. So wastage food can easily deliver to hungry people within a time.
