Flashfood allows shoppers to buy heavily discounted, surplus groceries and meals directly through their phones from participating grocery stores. Not only will you save money but you'll also be helping the environment (Wait, what? Keep reading...).
ONE THIRD of all food produced each year is WASTED. That’s 1.3 BILLION tons of food every year that is not eaten. This leads to food insecurity, billions of tons of greenhouse gas emissions and significant environmental damage. Yikes!! Come on people!
Flashfood is empowering its shoppers to be the change. By buying food through Flashfood, you are a leader in this movement. Together, we’re reducing food waste and its negative impacts on the environment.
Expect to find a little bit of everything! This includes fresh-prepared meals, daily staples like bread, meat, milk, eggs, and yogurt and even raw ingredients for your own home-cooking.
Once you have made a purchase, pick up your food any time that day at the Grocery Store you bought from.
Your food will be stored in the designated Flashfood Zone (there will be lots of Flashfood signage in the store telling you where to go – just ask any of the store employees if you need directions!). Pick up your items from the Flashfood Fridge or Dry Rack and then head to checkout at the front of the store (look for the cashier lane with the Flashfood sign). The cashier will confirm your purchase and you’ll be on your way!
Occasionally, the store will find themselves with a massive surplus of a particular product that regular discounting in-store and/or Flashdeals on the app alone will not be enough to sell it all in time. Instead, they drastically reduce the price and try to sell it in store and on the app for maximum exposure. These tend to be fast moving deals and don't last long.
No food in your area? Let us know! Tell us where you like to shop. We will reach out to these grocery stores to get them on board. We are working very hard to expand the movement and you can help.
And get out there! Talk to your local vendors. Ask what they’re currently doing with their surplus food and push them to join our movement. You can also sign up to get notified when we launch in a location near you: http://www.bit.ly/FFNotifyMe.
