There’s an app for that:
PareUp is a new app that aims to connect consumers to restaurants and food shops with excess food. Before retailers throw away food, they alert PareUp users and offer the extra food at a discounted price.
Rotten, stale or out of date food? Just add an iphone and a monthly contract:
The retailers will set the rate of the discounted food, and consumers can choose to take advantage of it if they’re interested. Many bakeries already give out “day old” pastries for a discounted price, and PareUp is hoping to bring that practice to all kinds of food retailers.
Obamagarbage, here we come.
