Europe saves 100,000 meals per day with one app. Here's how it could work in the US

Though the US has more residents who live in food insecurity than Europe does, it also sees a higher share of food waste from restaurants and supermarkets, Lykke says. Some 37 million Americans struggle with hunger, yet food is wasted on the retail part of the chain. "There is a big problem for us to solve," she adds.
Outside of the app's service, Too Good To Go has also worked to create a movement against food waste in the industry and education systems.
"The problem is way bigger than just the restaurant business," Lykke says. "The mindset we have around food is a bit flawed, and we're trying to bring respect for food back to people's minds."
