This sounds like a joke, but these people are serious and restaurant portions keep getting larger. I don't think this will appeal to everyone (or anyone?) and I'm not sure everyone who needs food would have smartphones. But here's how it will work: Just take a photo of your leftover food and post it to the app's database. Then total strangers in your area can trade you or just take it off your hands. I guess it's a noble effort to avoid wasted food, but I don't think I would do it....
Here's the link where you can sign up and be the first to know when the app is available for download - http://leftoverswap.com/
or follow them on Twitter, https://twitter.com/leftoverswap
It can be used by hungry takers or those who have extra to share.
These are the problems the app can potentially solve:
40% of the food we produce goes to waste.
25% of us don't know our neighbors' names.
70% of us are overweight.
16% of Americans lack enough food for a healthy lifestyle.
99% of us don't need a second helping of the beef lo mein.
