The market of mobile app is huge and it is getting bigger. If you take a look, you will find that a large number of businesses considers having a mobile app so as to boost sales, show loyalty to customers and to increase brand awareness. These days, mobile apps for ordering food is gaining huge momentum mainly because an app makes food ordering opened 24*7. In other words, when things are available online, barrier of time is just removed. Hence, you can place an order at anytime and from anywhere. In addition, you have the chance to order with a simplest menu. You can easily navigate the menu and can place your order with just few taps.

Talking about food apps, “Food for All” allows you to buy food restaurants have left over just before they close for the night. However, this doesn't mean that you are buying food of an individual's leftovers. In fact, you are buying food that didn't sell, which restaurants would be throwing away. As per the kickstarter page of an app, restaurants, caterers and several other vendors in the U.S. throw away about 43 billion pounds of food every year, which has a significant environmental impact. With the help of this app, you can enter your location and choose from a restaurant near you. However, the restaurants will not provide menus, but will offer 50% to 80% off and this might make you happy to get whatever they are delivering.

David Rodriguez began developing the app while developing his MBA at Hult International Business School, in Cambridge, MA because he wanted to do something about the food that is wasted in restaurants and hotels. It is said that the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health's Sustainable Technologies and Health Program has collaborated with Rodriguez on the app, which is now in beta testing at the restaurant of Cambridge.

New York's City Harvest picks up leftover food from restaurants, supermarkets as well as bakeries and gives it to food banks. This is considered as the biggest solution to this problem, but a lot more can be done and in this regard, the emergence of this app is the best thing. The Kickstarter campaign looking forward to finish the product in determined timeframe so as to launch in New York and Boston by July 2017.
