Food for All is a handy app that seeks to reduce food waste by connecting its users with local restaurants that are willing to sell the day’s remaining meals at a discount, rather than throwing them out. Additionally, the service will not interfere with charitable food donations as the restaurants determine when and what is available and for how much. Food for All is currently working with over 30 Boston-area restaurants and is currently raising funds through Kickstarter to broaden their reach.
In the United States, up to 40% of all food produced is wasted. If we combined all restaurants, cafeterias, fast food and caterers, they all together, throw away more than 43 billion pounds of food per year. Food For All helps to reduce food waste by allowing you to buy great food that restaurants did not sell by the end of the day, up to 80% cheaper than its original price….search for the closest restaurants that have available food for you. …Restaurants determine the pricing of each meal, between 50% and 80% cheaper than the original price. …Restaurants determine the time frame when customers can pick up their meals. Usually around the business’ closing hours or at the end of each shift.
