I don’t know what I was doing without this app, but Iv had local food pickup and went with family to another… I’m obsessed. Great food, great quality, awesome portions and most importantly I’m NOT leaving my bank account dry!!! ALSO I’m severely low income, so this app is LUXURY!
Waste of time and money 1/5
Businesses partners don’t have hours of operation updated. When you arrive places are either closed or “ran out of food” also the value for money on those that do serve you is ridiculous. I got 3 stale pastries from breakfast on an 8:30pm pick up. They were hard and not eatable. $4.99 in the trash. The other 2 “surprise” bags I claimed the restaurant was closed upon arrival and the company has a long behold process to refund the money you pay for this junk. It’s a great concept but it needs a strong desire and partnership between the app and the restaurants. If you don’t have anything good to donate you should remove your allocation, but how I felt with this particular bakery is they were counting exactly what they were supposed to give me for my $5 not for the $16-$18 value the app claims.
Needs improvement and better quality service from partners.
Great app 5/5
Helpful for student like me

False notifications 2/5
I downloaded this app because I loved the idea behind it. Unfortunately there are no stores in my area participating (yet), but the app said they would notify me when it became available. So I left the app on my phone just in case.
Now I receive notifications regularly saying that stores have opened up near me, only to open the app and find that’s still not true. I can’t comment on the quality of the app/service when it actually is available in your area, but I do not recommend keeping the app on your phone if it’s not.
Great idea, but 1/5
App requires that you create an account before it will do anything at all. Not up for yet another case of giving them my info before they show me anything. Good indicator that they’re data mining YOU. They could at the very least let me find out if the app even works in my area.
Great App! 5/5
New to this App a friend turned me on to. First time I used it was great! Recommend
Such a great concept! 5/5
By ashley b 60560
We are having so much fun with this app and scoring awesome surprise food bags! So far, we have tried the Panera grab bags a couple times and we just ordered some from our favorite local store, The Chocolate Shoppe. It’s fun being surprised and getting to try out new items you might not usually gravitate towards on your own! Plus, the deals are awesome and who can’t use a price break during these times of high inflation!
Cool idea, no stores in my area. 3/5
I think this is a great idea. But after downloading the app… I discovered that there are no participating stores in my large metropolitan area. Too bad.
Love the concept, would tweak a few things! 4/5
First and foremost, I want to say that I really do love the concept from this app. While I have only gotten one bag thus far, I did enjoy the selection of donuts that I was able to receive. Also, there’s a good deal of restaurants near me which provides a great selection to choose from.
Here are the cons— (1) I am unable to see any reviews. It would be helpful to know why a restaurant received a lower or higher rating. For some reason, the app will just give the rating and pick out the good things about the restaurant but that doesn’t help me decide if I want to purchase. Was the food not good? Was the quantity not good? Was it customer service? These would be good to know before purchasing. (2) I honestly don’t know why they even have an allergen section because it provides zero information, it might as well not be on the app. I get that it is a surprise bag, but there should be a way to receive some information, even if it’s “a majority of the products contain tree nuts”. Alternatively, if I could specify my allergens and the restaurant can approve or deny based on what they individuals selected. Something should improve here.
This is everything good =) 5/5
By Sammmmmy G
This app makes me happy in so many ways -
💚reducing food waste
💚allowing people of lower income to try food from fancier places around town that would usually be out of budget (this has felt like such a treat ☺️)
💚often providing generous portions big enough for more than one meal
And, as a student that is working and without any folks I regularly share meals with, it makes me feel cared for.
Couldn't recommend this app more 💚
Where are you located?? 1/5
Great idea, but shouldn’t have to download the app just to see that there are no participating stores in my (fairly large) metro area. Why not just list where you serve on your website?
Is hard to believe 1/5
Junk software. I didn't get my food. I didn't get my money back
Soup & Turkey dinner 5/5
What a great program this is, hoping it turns into complete success! LittleTeddy
APP itself is fine, selections are not 1/5
It’s almost all, like 99.9%, donuts and pastries, so if you like processed junk food, this is for you. There is real food being thrown out somewhere so not sure why the choices are so limited. And if these places know in advance they will have so many leftovers, why do they order so much? Makes little sense, IMO. Good idea, easy to use app, execution by suppliers suffers.
Login Doesn’t Work 5/5
I’m trying to login in with my Apple ID, email, even with my Facebook account that never use, I received a pop up window saying that is something wrong with the process, any suggestions?

Honest and fresh
DiFara Pizza 5/5
By Al Dente prime
The square slice is rarely mentioned but it is exceptional.
Good idea but not fully there yet 3/5
This is an excellent concept from and environmental and economic stance. However, many of these places already offer discounted food in day old items and therefore the savings is not accurate. I have bought three bags now and another with my wife’s app, and I can tell you that the money it says you saved is wrong because the price shown is the value of what you’re buying. So you need to subtract what you paid to see the actual savings. Also, some places are just
Not worth it particularly when you give up warmth, freshness and choice. I got a bag of say old Jalapeño bagels for $3.29
When I could’ve paid $5 to pick the bag of day old bagels of choice. This “surprise idea might be enhanced by allowing customers
To pick the types of surprise bags.
Love the app! 5/5
Such great deals! Wish every restaurant was part of this app.
ios 16 3/5
If you have an Apple device and update to ios 16, the app doesn’t seem to work
LOVE IT 5/5
There used to be no restaurants that participated in my area. I decided to revisit the app and now there are a handful. I absolutely love it! This is an amazing idea. I choose restaurants with four out of five stars at the least and my experience so far has been wonderful. There are great prices, a generous amount of food and you are saving food waste. I hope more and more restaurants join.
App is new 1/5
I’m sure they’ll work out the kinks. The food was awesome ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
🙄 Waste of space 2/5
By Freebe Gam3r
Well I had read about this and a few others so decided to try it
🙄 unfortunately my area isn’t listed so basically this is a waste of space on my phone
So for now the rating is 2 ⭐️ maybe in the future when I give it another look it’ll work in my area
There are kosher options in NYC! 5/5
I am very passionate about food rescue and was excited to download and try it out, but the problem with magic bags as a kosher-observant person is groceries don’t necessarily work out, and I would only be able to reliably get prepared food form a kosher restaurant. I was thrilled to see that there was at least 1 kosher restaurant participating in my area of New York City! You can keep kosher and rescue food! Great app experience.
Great idea!! 5/5
This is really fun! I like trying different restaurants and this is a great way to sample some new fare!
Nonexistent Customer Service 1/5
I have an issue with my order and for three weeks have not been able to contact them.
Great app, but too many bots 1/5
The app needs a better system for handling bots. I have reduced my app usage because I know that when I go to reserve, as soon an a bag opens up, it gets taken by a bot. Many times these bots later delete their bag purchase as well. If not handled it will continue to reduce customer engagement.
By Muffins and Mayhem
User friendly app/idea that it is both environmentally conscious and budget friendly! Allows me to explore new areas and local establishments in my area. Hoping this catches on in more US cities.
Great but need more Variety. 4/5
This is a GREAT CONCEPT! I’ve purchased 5 bags so far. Would REALLY appreciate it if more variety of restaurants would participate. Right now it’s all Bagels and Pizzerias. BUT IT’S STILL GREAT!!
Good when working. 2/5
Loved it until the latest update. Has not worked since. Was a great idea to diminish food waste.
Why did you make me download? 1/5
I live in an area that is quite populous but geographically remote. That means it’s a toss up on whether there would be anyone here participating. But instead of letting me look on the website the site days “download and see” so it takes me three minutes and a walk through and signing up for an account for them to tell me there’s no one in my area. Waste of my time to get my email address so now I’m assuming they’ll spam me about a product I can’t even use. Thanks folks.
Nothing in my area. 1/5
By Yiddisha mooma
There are no stores in my neighborhood that participates in this program. I don’t think any effort has been made to get business in the Princeton area’s or East Windsor, Monroe, or Freehold or South Brunswick .
Good invention 5/5
This is definitely a good idea. So far my order was easy to pickup from the restaurant and I’m glad I gave it a shot. I will be using this service on regular or daily basis.
App is not loading anymore 2/5
App was great until recent update. The app just wouldn’t load. Would be at the loading screen forever with nothing coming up. Very unfortunate. Developers please fix as I loved this app!
Perfect ! 5/5
Great Concept & App 5/5
Found this app from a friend and love it! Easy to use and great deals! I love that it’s helping eliminate waste as well.
Overall, tasty food for a low price 5/5
By dryness NBC rr
This app is a great way to try new restaurants. Most restaurants I’ve tried have been delicious, but every once in a while the food will be blah.
The 20 minute pickup window is ridiculous 1/5
By glass chic
Ok, my family, in a more populated area, loves this and I’ve tried. But im my area the restaurants and stores have 20-30 minute pick up window! From 6pm-6:30 and 11:30pm-11:50pm I mean how inflexible is that and nearly impossible for anyones schedule. So of course if any traffic you are out of luck! I’ve missed two pick ups due to construction traffic or rush hour…. And no lenience or compensation am just nope out of food after the trip. One more try and I’m done. Chicagoland area.
I would recommend this to my friends and family. 5/5
This is a tremendous idea and it is very professionally implemented. The app is fantastic and it actually works in the messy real world. Big kudos to the Too Good To Go team.
Excellent source of great foods. 4/5
By Wild borg
Also saving foods otherwise would gone to trash. I believe this one way to help a lot of people. If a single person that don’t cook often, this is an easy way to buy great food at a great price.
Our first purchase 5/5
Very sustainable / eco friendly. Favorite way to eat!!! <3 5/5
So many good choices, and it’s always nice to be surprised and try new things. I love how much food waste is being saved with this and I greatly appreciate the companies that participate. Thank you too good to go and those involved <3
Good idea, but rarely feels like a good value 2/5
I was so excited by the concept of this app. But more than half of the times that I have tried it, I’ve been really disappointed by the amount of food that I got. It is hardly a value, given that this food is all technically food waste.
A good app, helping to introduce me to new places that I hadn’t known about before and that I will likely go back to, even without the app!
Bagels Galore 5/5
Just picked up my surprise bag. Received about a dozen bagels. Mixed. Nice assortment. Very fresh.
Yummy treats 5/5
This was my first time coming here. The treats were so good. I’ll definitely come back.
Was Excited but have had No luck 1/5
I was super excited this app had so many great reviews. I tried to use it for the first time today, and both restaurants I reserved orders at were closed when I arrived. I got an instant refund for the first, and sent a request for the second. I’m not sure if I’ll try again, but make sure to Google each restaurant before you reserve to make sure they’re actually open.
My new favorite service 5/5
The idea is so good I wish I thought of it! The service is great, I love the surprise bag aspect of it and saving food from waste feels great too. I’m surprised that more people don’t know about this in San Francisco yet, but I think it will get popular soon.
