Leftovers? There’s an App for That

 |  |  |  |  |  |  September 4, 2013


I hate wasting food. I hate having to bring up that old “kids are starving in Africa” reasoning, but I will anyway, because it’s true. However, I don’t believe in gorging yourself with food either, just so you won’t have any leftovers. There’s always storing them away in the fridge so you can finish them the next day or sharing them with random people through Leftoverswap.

Leftoverswap

LeftoverSwap is an app that’s currently in development, which lets you connect with people who might be hungry for your leftovers. I’m not kidding.

Here’s how it works: If you’re a giver, simply take a picture of your leftovers, name it and upload it to the app. If you’re a taker, browse the leftovers near you and arrange for a pickup or delivery.

The app’s website points out that some glaring statistics: 4o% of food produced isn’t eaten, but actually goes to waste. Aside from that, 70% of people are overweight, with about 99% not needing that second helping of whatever dish they’re about to pig out on.

It’s too bad though that the people who need your leftovers the most (such as homeless people and streetchildren) probably don’t have smartphones.
