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.

I figured I could save money and help prevent food waste. There are a number of problems with the app. Most importantly, the app does not prompt the stores to indicate the size so you have no idea how much you are paying per unit for the items and the pics are too blurry to tell. The "savings" are based on over-inflated pricing, resulting in payment of normal pricing. Just shop the sale prices instead of using this app.

Hey Jill! We understand this can be frustrating and are looking into updating the app more and more to include features that better showcase the products posted by stores. We are also slowly expanding and hope to be more popular in your area :)

I'm very glad I found this site! The app is easy to use when finding the location you want to shop, and it's also easy to switch locations. The products are easily selected into a cart and once you add your payment choice it holds the info and checkout is nearly one click. There's always someone who helps pick out the order from the case. And.... You're DONE! Nice work guys! I love the app ❤️

Made a purchase. Item was not in the locked cooler, so I was told to just go find one close in price to original purchase price. Closest in price was over $3 less than the one I bought. No price adjustment offered. I "saved" $2, but would not have even made the purchase for that "sale" price. Also, the expiration date on the replacement was the same as the one I was supposed to have gotten (July 26th). What a rip off. Deleting the app. Do not recommend.
