Food waste is one of the biggest issues of the decade, especially in a time when people are struggling to pay their rent and bills. Too Good to Go is remedying this by offering restaurant meals at affordable prices to prevent food waste.
This British services offers restaurants the ability to sell any leftover feed during non-peak hours, like after the lunch rush or just before closing. Prices range from £2 to £3.80 per food item (or approximately $2.60 and $5 respectively), though users do have to order ahead of time. This means restaurants make a profit, as they lose £1 per meal they toss out, while preventing further waste and helping feed others.
The service is currently in Brighton, Leeds, Birmingham, and Manchester with 95 establishments available so far, and will be available in London within a month. The app is available for Android and iOS.
