While some people are not fans of leftover food, creators of a new app in the United Kingdom are hoping to change some minds.

"Too Good To Go" allows you to buy quality food for half the price from restaurants that ordered too much.

The concept is simple. All you have to do is download the app, pick a restaurant, and pick up some food when it's time.

The company hopes this will resolve some problems associated with the hundreds of tons of food that is wasted every year.

You can't pick the exact leftovers you'll eat for dinner, but the app will give you an idea of what the restaurant will have when the pickup window opens.

There is also the option to donate money through the app. The money will go towards providing meals to people in need.
