Eats for a Week was created in 2009 for the PennApps competition. The site aggregates event data from 50+ organizations on campus automatically, and indexes it for easy searching. Two presets are enabled, all food and 21+. All food searches for many different keywords associated with food events, such as “reception” or “pizza.” 21+ searches for all booze-related events. Event reminders can be set up through email, SMS, or Google Calendar. Events can also be shared through all major social bookmarking platforms.
When users sign in to their accounts, they can submit their own events to the database. However, users do not need to be signed in to submit events. If a user does not want to create an account, events can be added by passing a simple CAPTCHA test.
