Save money. Eliminate food waste. Feed others.
1/3 of the world's food ends up in a landfill. That's 1.3 billion tons of food wasted every year. We're empowering our users to change that!
The Flashfood app allows grocery stores, restaurants, cafes and bakeries to sell high-quality, surplus food at steep discounts to savvy users who can browse deals in their area and purchase items directly through Flashfood - saving money for users, increasing revenue for vendors and lessening our collective environmental impact.
It's a win-win solution for everyone.
How Flashfood works:
Download the flashfood app and start browsing deals immediately. You'll be notified as soon as a grocery store, restaurant or cafe/bakery flashfood sale is happening near you. *Currently in private beta.
Purchase & Pickup
Purchase high quality items at steep discounts right from your phone. Then head off to collect your food from the vendor in the allocated time window.
Show your order confirmation at the vendor location and grab your food without any hassles. Enjoy good food, a good deal and the good deed!

Why use flashfood?
Save money on food.
Before the surplus food goes to waste, grocery stores and restaurants will post the item to the flashfood app, giving you a discount of 45%-75% off the original sale price. Cha-ching!
Reduce food waste.
Currently, about $6+ billion of food is wasted in Canada each year by grocery stores and restaurants, much of which is thrown out well before it is spoiled. (Sometimes days, weeks, or even months too soon!) This doesn't need to happen.
Feed someone who is hungry.
A portion of the proceeds from your (seriously discounted) food bill will go directly into the flashfood account of a food bank in your local community. Win-win!
