Feeling guilty about throwing away half a serving of last night’s General Tsao’s chicken? Just post it on LeftoverSwap and arrange to give the unwanted portions to a neighbor.
LeftoverSwap is an app designed to help reduce food waste and the waist lines of Americans by offloading food, which would otherwise become unwanted calories or thrown into the trash, on neighbors. The intent of the app is to bring communities together, cut back on obesity, and help those without enough food.
Users can post leftover listings with photos of food they don’t want to finish or reheat all week long. Alternatively, users can search for leftovers posted by locals, and arrange to either pick the food up or have it delivered.
LeftoverSwap will be available for iPhone on August 30th, with an Android app soon to follow.
