App Too Good to Go Connects Restaurants and People to Decrease Food Waste

Interesting read from FastCoexist:

The app, available on Android, iOS, or in any browser, matches restaurants with hungry customers. Participating restaurants list their leftovers, and customers can browse to see what’s available. You can order right from the app, then go pick up your bargain dish.

The service was launched by Chris Wilson and Jamie Crummie in the UK and is already available in cities in Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Norway, Switzerland, UK. It’s designed more as a way to manage waste than to generate a profit: Although the restaurants do make a little on each non-wasted meal, the idea is that they avoid losing money and that they don’t waste perfectly good food.
