DoorDash Tries A Unique Solution To The Food Waste Problem

January 28, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Food delivery app DoorDash has come up with a scheme to put the 50 tons of its extra restaurant food that gets tossed annually into dumpsters and landfills to better use. Pilot programs set up in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York City allow local restaurants to donate their unused food to food banks. DoorDash delivery people pick up the food and drop it off at Feeding America hubs that in turn redistribute it. After January, DoorDash will seek to partner with national restaurants already available on the app and have those sponsor donations each month.  [ Image credit: © Baskin-Robbins  ]
