The organisers of the Greenhouse Gas and Dietary choices Open source Toolkit (GGDOT) Hack Oxford invite nutrition, emissions and psychology experts to come and improve the content of the toolkit including using other dietary databases (than the NDNS), improving the matching with GHG/LCA databases, and to have fun working with the data hackers to improve e.g. the visualisations. They have made a database and some python tools for you to play with which shows a breakdown of emissions and nutrition for a set of foods you specify e.g. what you ate yesterday, or your favourite recipe, or the average UK diet. 

Data hackers: you could play with different foods to try to find a nutritious and tasty low carbon diet, work on improving the visualisation of this complex dataset, think of neat optimisation tools and work with nutrition and emissions experts to improve the content.
