SAN DIEGO, CA / ACCESSWIRE / March 8, 2023 / Too Good To Go, the world's largest marketplace for selling surplus food, is now available in San Diego County.

Too Good To Go connects businesses who have surplus food with consumers who buy Surprise Bags at ⅓ the retail cost. The Surprise Bag element is unique to Too Good To Go and reflects the unpredictable nature of food waste. Consumers will purchase bags from categories such as: baked goods, prepared meals, grocery items, among others. By using the app businesses can recoup some revenue from food loss and waste, consumers can eat great food for less and everyone can help to lower the harmful impacts of food waste on the environment.

Too Good To Go is pleased to launch in San Diego with 90+ partners, notably: Blackmarket Bakery, MRKT, Pannikin, Pappalecco, and Nomad Donuts. With more partners added weekly consumers are encouraged to check back often to see what new stores have joined and what delicious new Surprise Bags are ready to be saved.

Said Chris MacAulay, Too Good To Go Country Manager, "Too Good To Go imagines a world without food waste and provides businesses and consumers an easy pathway to making this possible. San Diego's creative and innovative food scene presents the perfect opportunity to achieve this lofty goal. We're excited to expand our app in Southern California to bring more choices to consumers looking to eliminate waste and lower their bills. I encourage all food selling businesses to join and start making money off of their surplus food today."

Following the company's successful launch in L.A. last September Too Good To Go is encouraged by the progress it has seen in saving food from waste in California, and excited to bring this innovation to San Diego. Since launching in L.A. Too Good To Go has already saved more than 55,000 meals from more than 250 partners.

The Too Good To Go app is available for iOS download in the Apple App Store and Google Play for Android. To learn more about Too Good To Go as well as tips and trips to eliminate food waste follow on Instagram at: TooGoodToGo.usa.
