Newly-launched Dubai app Keepeat offers surplus food for 50% less

Looking for a way to cut down on food waste and eat for cheap in Dubai? This new app is for you.

Food delivery app Keepeat has officially launched, a place where restaurants sell surplus food that otherwise would have gone to waste – all to save the environment.

The platform offers a list of restaurants around the city giving away surplus food, and in better news, foodies on the app can buy their meals for 50 percent off. That’s a steal.

Venues already on board include Asian street-food joint Wok Boyz, bakery and eatery Kaak Al Manara, casual dining spot Il Lago by Chef Andrea, local bites at Manoushe Street, JLT’s healthy dining venue Hayz, Beirut Bites and more.

Like any other food app, users can sign up and get their dishes delivered to their front door, or they can pick it up themselves. Meals will be available when restaurants are giving away surplus food.
