Have you got an app to reduce food waste? There are loads of brilliant apps available that can help tackle food waste.

Some of our favourite food waste apps

Too Good To Go

On Too Good To Go, local restaurants and businesses list any surplus food that would be going to waste. Users can search for unsold food near them, and then buy and collect a ‘magic bag’ for a fraction of the price. This is a great way to save food and money!


Olio is a brilliant app that allows you to share unwanted food (and other items) for free in your local community. Users can collect food from their neighbours, local shops or even catering companies that have excess food.


Kitche is a free mobile app designed to save you money and reduce your food waste at home. The app allows you to scan receipts to track the food you have bought. It then produces handy shopping lists and clever recipe tips adapted to what you have at home.
