Last Call is a mobile app in development that it’d be great to see launched.
“Every night, because their extra food won’t last until morning, restaurants are forced to add to the growing food waste epidemic. Last Call is a late night delivery service that helps restaurants reduce food waste, while giving customers the food they love at discounted prices.”
A push notification alerts you when the app opens for the night.
You enter your delivery address.
Menu items populate based on your location.
Restaurants list what fresh items they have left to sell at a discounted price before they have to be thrown out.
Meals are sold on a first come, first served basis.
Easy as that.
Becca told me that building the app is much less of a challenge than building the infrastructure needed for the service to work. Ideally, they want to partner with food ordering services such as Seamless or UberEATS, so rather than starting from scratch they’d be able to add an “earth-friendly” option to those services.
