A new app being developed by a Massachusetts startup is targeting customers who follow the “waste not, want not” philosophy.
Food For All, based in Cambridge, is developing a mobile app that will let users buy leftover food from local restaurants at a big discount, according to Bostinno. The company says it is looking to reduce waste by offering food that would be thrown out at the end of the day,
Users will find deals near their location and order the food within the app. Restaurants determine when customers can pick up their meals whether it is around the business’ closing hours or at the end of each shift. The food purchased through the app can be between 50 to 80 percent cheaper using Food For All.
The company is hoping to raise $50,000 through Kickstarter to launch a final version of the app in Boston and New York next summer. Backers can pre-purchase meals through the fundraising website starting at $24 for four of them.
