‘Too Good to Go’ app reduces food waste and saves money on takeout, groceries

“So far we’ve saved about 140,000 meals here in Philadelphia,” said Gaeleen Quinn of Too Good to Go.

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — As the price of everything goes up, especially groceries, there’s a unique app that aims to cut costs while helping local businesses and the planet.

It’s called “Too Good to Go”. It started with restaurants but now grocery stores are on board.

In the app you can find all kinds of unsold groceries for at least one discount from the retail price.

Here in Philadelphia, more than 450 local businesses are on board – from restaurants to bakeries to grocery stores. The idea is to save us money, help companies recoup lost sales, and keep good food out of landfills.

“So far we’ve saved about 140,000 meals here in Philadelphia. To give you an idea of ​​why this is so important, this is the carbon footprint equivalent to over 60 flights around the world. That’s the kind of impact we’re having,” Gaeleen Quinn said of Too Good to Go.

Here’s the fun part. They go to the app and choose a “snack bag” of random goodies from participating businesses. They range from $4 to $6.

Our Alicia Vitarelli got over $20 worth of food in her $5 surprise bag from DiBruno Bros. in Rittenhouse.

It included a whole chicken and mashed potatoes, a small Caesar salad and a piece of cake.

“That’s usually what you get,” says Emilio Mignucci, vice president of DiBruno Bros. “We minimize waste and recoup a few bucks. It’s a win-win situation and the customer is happy.”
