It’s a Tuesday night and you are starving, but nothing is in the house, so you make the decision to order food. Suddenly, $30 is down the drain.

In an increasingly technological world, ordering food is as easy as ever. From Uber Eats to DoorDash, having food delivered to your doorstep is incredibly convenient and makes it much easier to spend money. Too Good to Go is yet another food platform that offers food for cheap from select stores. Not only does the app cheapen the expense of food, but it also is environmentally friendly. The basis of the app is that at select hours you can go pick up surplus food from select restaurants.

While not many people are aware of this app, the few who utilize it greatly appreciate its value.

I really like the app. I use it at least once a week. I get food for cheap and it makes sure nothing goes to waste.”

While the app only offers select stores and restaurants to buy food from, it has a relatively wide variet. From bakeries to pizza parlors to sushi, there’s something for everyone.

“I almost always pick up food from Le Pain Quotidien,” senior Calla Johnson said.

The restaurant almost always gives away food with high value at a low price. Mamma Lucia, for example, will give you pizza and garlic bread for just $4.

Many students don’t have a steady income and even if they do, they won’t make enough money to spend on dinner every week. This app drastically reduces the price of ordering food.

“I stopped ordering out other restaurants and started mainly just using Too Good to Go and I have saved so much money,” senior Hadley Brown said.
