Too Good To Go is an app that helps everyday people fight food waste in their local communities by connecting them to restaurants and grocery stores with surplus meals and ingredients.

Once registered, users can choose from their favourite local spots to pick up meals like sushi, or ingredients like apples and avocados for a third of the normal price.

The goal is a win-win-win solution in which consumers get great food, merchants no longer throw away delicious surplus and waste is reduced.

Founded in 2016 in Copenhagen, and now in 15 countries, Too Good To Go saves more than 100,000 meals every day.


According to the company, more than half the food produced in Canada is wasted every year. This contributes to eight per cent of all global greenhouse gas emissions and $1.2 trillion worth of food.
