Diners Can Go Halfsies to Solve Issues of Obesity, Food Waste and Hunger
Lose weight and do some good in the world by donating your leftovers
Controlling the size of your portions is a great way to save money, food, and unnecessary health problems caused by obesity. Eating out on the other hand, takes that control away from you – unless you go for a restaurant that's signed up for Halfsies. Launched at the end of 2012 in Texas and New York, it's an initiative that lets you donate half of your food before it even gets to the table. Apart from the warm fuzzy feeling you get from giving, your waistline will be thankful as well.
