About 40% of food in America will be wasted. And an average American family wastes $1,500 worth of food every year. That's billions of dollars of food that goes to landfill, creating greenhouse gases that warm our planet. Don't be a statistic.
Sabine Valenga and her co-founders, David Rodríguez and Victor Carreño, were at a Harvard incubation program when they came up with the idea of Food for All, an app that allows you to rescue food from restaurants an hour before they close at a fraction of the cost. The app has partnered with hundreds of restaurants in Boston and New York City, with plans to disrupt the food waste culture in America and beyond.
