This app offers discounts on surplus restaurant food
Eat with Karma
Restaurants and grocery stores waste a lot of food. In a study conducted by ReFED, they found that restaurants generate 11.4 million tons of food waste per year, which adds up to a whopping $25 billion wasted.
A new app called Karma is on a mission to save the waste and get you a cheap dinner at the same time. First created in Stockholm, Sweden and now branching out to other major cities internationally, Karma helps to sell surplus food that would ordinarily be thrown away. The discounts range from nearly free to 50% off, making eating with Karma a great deal.
Karma offers a wide range of restaurants, from fast-food joints to Michelin star-rated locations. “Restaurants upload individual items or meals with pictures [to Karma], so users know exactly what they are getting,” Alex Spain, the Vice President of Karma, told Mic.com. “Our ambitions are to have a great impact as possible globally—that means working with as many suppliers in as many markets as we can,” Spain said.
Though this app has yet to hit American service industries, with the ample amount of restaurants and tech-savvy eaters throughout the country, Karma could be on its way to being the next big food service app.
