Buy Cheap Leftovers When Local Restaurants Close
Food For All is a new app designed to help prevent waste and save money in the process
To help combat the world’s food waste problem, Food For All is an app that mobilizes Boston’s local restaurants to sell their leftover food at cheaper prices.
According to Food For All, 40 percent of food produced—a whopping 43 billion pounds-worth—is wasted every year. Clearly, we have a long way to go in solving this global phenomenon, but Food For All is taking it one step at a time.
Food For All Project Head David Rodriguez has already convinced 30 restaurants in Boston to sign up. All they have to do is download the app, order the leftover food, pay and then schedule for pick-up before the restaurant closes. If they hit their crowdfunding goal, ideally their end goal is to service the Boston and New York City areas
