It seems too good to be true, what’s the catch? 🦄

There’s no catch! Grocers are working hard to reduce waste. By partnering with Flashfood, they’re able to sell food nearing its best by date faster and more reliably because of our passionate Flashfoodies. For the grocer, that means reducing waste. For our shoppers, that means a steady stream of deals. A real win-win! To date, our 2 million plus users have helped get over 20 million pounds of delicious food to dinner tables—instead of landfills.

Just in case the sheer joy of a great meal at a killer price isn’t enough—shopping with Flashfood means you’re directly helping to reduce food waste in your community.

30-40% of food in the US gets wasted and it’s the biggest category of material placed in municipal landfills in America. When good food gets sent to a landfill, it decomposes and emits methane gas—a greenhouse gas even more brutal than carbon dioxide. That’s why we’re here. Who knew service to the planet could also be delicious?

Need help? We’re here.

Easy to use. I think the app is only as good as the store it partners with. My Giant store is very good about the postings. I have had a couple instances where an item was not there when I picked up my order. Refunds are done by the app, not the store. I don't plan my menu ahead of time, so this is a good option for food that should be eaten same day. I use the app every week.

What a great way to combat food waste! The items, in my experience, have always been as described and acceptable for use at least for the next day or two (and with some meats, longer with freezing). Some minor app glitches (you should be able to know what item is out of stock instead of emptying your cart), but overall it works well and is user friendly.

Need a feature where you can click on things you like and keep a list of what store they are at. Trying to remember what items you saw at what store is very difficult. After you purchase your item and go back to view the purchase, it does not have a total. Need to be able to see total so that I can match it up with my credit card statement. I have to remember to screenshot the total before finishing. Would be great if there were a pic of or info on the nutrition of the product... Need to kn
