SussexFood create vegetarian Too Good To Go page

For Stop Food Waste Day (Friday 27 April) and onward, SussexFood have added an exclusively vegetarian offer to their everyday Too Good To Go deal.

As of 27 April, non-meat eaters can snag themselves a Too Good To Go mystery box that’s completely meat-free!

What’s more, on 27 April Too Good To Go will refund anyone who buys a meal with them through the app to celebrate the great environmental results they have achieved thus far through customers using the app!

To access the vegetarian offer, download the Too Good To Go app on your phone (you can do this through this link ) and buy yourself a discounted meal to collect from Eat Central later that evening.

The app works to rescue meals that would otherwise go in the bin, so you’re not only banking yourself a cheap deal but also eating sustainably!

A note from the Too Good To Go team

Brightonians could rescue over 19,000 meals this Stop Food Waste Day

  • Over 19,000 meals going to waste every day in Brighton

  • Join the movement on Stop Food Waste Day 27 April - rescue a meal for free

Stop Food Waste Day is on Friday 27 April and food waste fighters Too Good To Go are challenging Brightonians to join them to rescue all meals in the city on that day. A shocking 19,120 perfectly edible meals end up in the bin every day from food establishments all over Brighton and Hove according to findings from the online marketplace for surplus food Too Good To Go. If these meals are saved from landfill it would be the same as taking eight cars off the road every day.

To date, Brighton residents have rescued more than 12,000 meals from over 30 food retailers including Moshimo, Real Patisserie, Dum Dum Donuts and Yo! Sushi via the free Too Good To Go app. That’s prevented the same amount of CO2 as growing 622 trees for 10 years!

To celebrate this impressive achievement, the Too Good To Go team are refunding anyone who rescues a meal in Brighton via the app on Stop Food Waste Day this Friday (27 April). The Too Good To Go Team will also be in Churchill Square from 10am on the day, so you can learn about the food waste revolution - and pick up some tasty treats.

Local resident James Denis, a regular waste warrior at Moshimo, said: “It’s great food at a great price and it’s so local. Food waste is something we need to combat and to be able to get this fresh food when you’re feeling a bit peckish, is amazing!”

Jamie Crummie, co-founder of Too Good To Go said: “More than an easy way to get delicious food, Too Good To Go is a catalyst to changing mindsets. What we perceive to be waste often isn't actually 'waste' at all - it's perfectly good food that gets thrown away because it wasn’t sold. If every store in Brighton and Hove joined the platform and everyone living here rescued just one meal a month through Too Good To Go, there would be no retail food waste in Brighton - imagine that!”
