Introducing my new favourite App from Too Good To Go, the world’s largest B2C marketplace for surplus food.
Simply download the app, search your local area for participating cafes, restaurants and food shops and purchase your ‘magic bag’. You pay a small price, then pop along at the specified time and get a bag of goodies. The contents are always a surprise and filled with items that are left at the end of the day.
It’s fair to say that I’ve rather enjoyed ‘doing the research’ on this post and I’ve managed to get the kids to try lots of delicious food from our local vegetarian restaurant. But, there is of course more to be gained than just tasty treats; this is a brilliant solution for tackling food waste and supporting local businesses.
Food waste facts:
• One-third of all food is lost or wasted
• Food waste accounts for 8-10% of all CO2e emissions
