My favorite time of day is to get up and eat leftovers from dinner, especially spicy food. – David Byrne
Leftovers are not that bad. And those who waste food don’t know the value of it. Too Good To Go, an app operating in the UK, allows users to order leftover food from restaurants at a discounted rate. Their goal is to help curb waste from establishments that typically toss out perfectly edible food at the end of the day.
Users simply need log in, pick a restaurant, and pay through the app. Then users have to pick up their food from their respective restaurants at designated times ( usually around closing or after peak meal times )
Food waste just seems like one of the dumbest problems we have in this world – James Crummie ( co-founder)
Users also have the option to give meals to people in need by donating 1 British pound or more through the app, according to the website. More than 1,100 meals have been donated so far. It’s keeping perfectly edible food out of landfills.

Restaurants using the app make extra revenue by selling food that would otherwise have been tossed, according to the Telegraph. And Too Good To Go itself makes money by taking a fee from participating restaurants on each sale.
We’ve also seen these kind of initiatives in India. Like the No Food Waste App.
At the end of the day,
Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish
