After clicking on one of the links , I am not sure that this will catch on as a sustainable method of dealing with excess food. Were I on the verge of starvation I might be willing to lay out a small amount of cash and take my chances that I would get a baked potato stuffed with beans...  


“I decided to try it out. I bought my first lunch with the app for £3.49 from Cafe Bread & Butter, a small cafe not far from the River Cam that I had never been to before, even though it was a short 10-minute stroll from my house.


Unfortunately, I could only collect my lunch between 2.30pm and 3.30pm, which meant I was starving by the time I arrived. I also had no choice about what I would be given: it turned out to be a jacket potato with cheese, beans and salad, a packet of salt and pepper crisps (again, I couldn’t choose which flavour) and a strawberry Ribena.”


but what do I know?
