0115:  /leftovers


Stop throwing out good food

You realized it the next morning.  It probably wasn’t the best idea to order a pizza at 2am.  Now you’ve got leftover slices of sausage, bacon, and extra shame.

Before you throw that pie out, take a photo and post it on /leftovers so that someone in your area, probably your apartment building, can come down and take it off your hands.

Having second thoughts about those two bags of kale chips you got at Whole Foods yesterday?  Someone on /leftovers could use them.

Food from strangers on the internet!?  Who would do such a thing?  If you’ve visited the odd corners of Craigslist you know that people are sharing much stranger things than food.  At least with /leftovers you can turn that sense of shame into some warm fuzzies from knowing your pizza and kale chips ended up in someone’s stomach rather than the garbage.

We are building the local web and sharing a new way to use it each day.
