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.
