You Gonna Eat That: There's A New Company That Sells Your Buffet Leftovers

France started fighting hunger by requiring grocery stores to donate older food to the needy, instead of tossing it. Naturally, the next bright idea towards tackling wasted food is in greatly discounting unused food from buffets...
The BuffetGo website has a list of restaurants — all of them are either standalone or hotel buffets. The food is discounted by 75% to 90%. A recent meal from a Vegas Seafood Buffet was priced at $5, down from the regular price of $20.
‘This new and revolutionary way of dealing with the food waste epidemic problem our planet is suffering from is beneficial for all parts,’ BuffetGo founder Emil Rosengren Lolby wrote in an email to The Times.
The company launched in Los Angeles in September; it has been operating in New York City and Chicago since earlier in the year.
