-------------------------------------------------
More than 40% of the food in US is lost or wasted. We started Zero Percent. to bring that down to ZERO.

This is not a tech company. We aim to create a community system in order to help food businesses achieve ZERO food waste. The service will always be free for businesses and consumers eliminating food waste.

"Zero Percent has an admirable goal–zero percent food waste," Jonathan Bloom, author of American Wasteland - How America Throws Away Nearly Half of its Food.

When businesses such as restaurants have excess food inventory, they either enter a donation (for local pantries or soup kitchens) or post real time discounts into Zero Percent. The discounts will instantly be visible to customers nearby via this app, Android app and Zero Percent website. The discount is available for anyone and everyone. No account registration or coupon is needed. Just mention Zero Percent or show the phone.

Not sure this works I did manage to download this but it keeps saying "No current offers" and "No local donors this week". Maybe I live too far away from C/U area, but I drive there at least once a week. I sure wish it was working - this is a really great idea!! (5++ stars for idea)
