I love a good meal, so what better way to give myself an excuse to treat myself than to talk about some Food Apps. Some of these Apps will let you order food directly to your door, others will help you decide which foods you may need to stay away from. But enough talk, let’s get you ready to order your next meal.
No.1 Too Good To Go: End Food Waste
Too Good To Go: End Food Waste
- Great way to save on waste
- Cheaper alternative to getting fresh food
- Eat food from a variety of restaurants
To begin this article, let's talk about an App with a great idea. Too Good To Go contacts a huge amount of stores and restaurants to bring you fresh food which would otherwise be thrown away. 40% of all edible food is thrown away each year in the US alone, so why not take advantage of this?
This App is simple to use. Find a store near you, browse their available menu, add your order to your basket and go collect your meal. Not only will the food taste great but you can be a little more reassured that you have done your part in saving food wastage.
Too Good To Go helps your local bakeries and independent food stores from throwing away their leftovers. So if you buy from these stores you’re also helping out your local vendors from losing money too.
Too Good To Go is a great way to try out foods from stores and restaurants that you wouldn’t normally go to. Not only is the food good for your mouth but it gives you a peaceful state of mind as you chow down on your spaghetti.
