Sometimes leftover food just loses its appeal on the second day it sits in the fridge, which can be quite wasteful. 'LeftoverSwap' is an app in development that is looking to tackle this problem head-on, since about "40% of the food we produce goes to waste."

The 'LeftoverSwap' app is designed to help locals meet and swap leftovers. This system is similar to Craigslist, but instead of trying to buy or sell furniture, it is designed to help feed hungry people, reduce the amount of wasted food, build community, as well as conserve resources and energy.

Although the app has yet to launch, it is an inventive way to solve several problems at once, especially since food always seems to taste better when someone else prepares it for you.
