We have all done it before, ordered a massive takeaway only to find that we can barely get halfway through it before giving up, then what! The food is left but is very rarely eaten and so it ends up in the bin, which is a waste because one of your neighbours might have enjoyed that food last night. So, this is where @leftoverswap comes in, you simply take a photo of your leftovers and the app does the rest, before long the food will be picked up by a hungry neighbour and the food is not wasted, its appreciated.

According to the Leftover Swap website, this is why we need an app like this;

LeftoverSwappers don’t feel the need to eat an enormous restaurant portion, and instead pass it on to a hungrier neighbour, in turn learning their name and avoiding excess calories. Through increasing the efficiency of each plot of land dedicated to food production, we can reduce our intensive use of natural resources, and reduce our expansion into sensitive environmental areas.

This is app is due to be released for the iPhone within the next couple of days and for Android users a little later.
