Food for All

Dine for as little as $4 and do good for the planet!
Food for All connects you with unsold meals from local restaurants for at least 50% off.
Food for All is an app making possible for users to buy fresh unsold meals from restaurants for at least 50% off. Pickup time is within the restaurants working hours, usually 1 hr before they close. It's a simple and fun way for users and business to save money and do good for our planet at the same time - because delicious food should be tasted, not wasted.

What Problem Are They Solving?

40% of the food produced in the U.S. is wasted. This not only is one of the main contributors to climate change, but it also represents a total value of $161 billion at a retail and consumer levels.
• For restaurants and cafes, food overproduction means loss of opportunities to sell and it normally results in perfectly edible meals being thrown away on a daily basis. This means additional costs with ingredients, labor, and waste disposal fees.
• For busy people on a budget, eating out is expensive and cooking takes time. Additionally, 1 in every 7 Americans is food insecure.

What's Innovative About Their Solution?

We are tapping into the unperceived value of surplus food inventory. Rescuing prepared leftover food is an incredibly expensive and complicated operation, which makes it a not scalable solution. We are eliminating the logistics piece of it by matching surplus meals directly to paying customers willing to pick it up for the deep discount.
Other apps tried similar concepts, but their model required restaurants to post items on a daily basis. Restaurants do not want any extra work, especially close to closing. What is innovative about our model is that we work with flexible meal options: users know what they can expect when reserving meals, but they can choose exactly what they are going to get once they arrive at the pickup time. This way, restaurants have to setup their profile only once when they join the platform.
