It doesn't take much experience in ML to get the hang of basic resource planning algorithms so one thing you could try to do is combine a GIS interface with messaging and planning functions that could be used to coordinate distribution of left over food or other resources from households or companies to less fortunate and impoverished people. Perhaps as a kind of library for useful, locally available items that otherwise would be hard for some members of society to benefit from.

I'm not sure to what extent this is already done in India but in some other places it is fairly common to use e.g. Facebook groups and the like to coordinate it locally, sometimes it is even incorporated as business.
