The Czech Nesnězeno and the Hungarian Munch have merged to jointly rescue food meant for disposal but still fit for consumption.
Founded in Hungary about two years ago by a group of university students, Munch has become an instant success: the app lets users browse restaurants, bakeries, and shops, which give them a huge discount on unsold food before closing time, saving them from being discarded. The significance of the service has grown in recent months, with food prices rising by more than 40% in a year, making it even more important that nothing goes to waste.
Munch has recently been joined by Nesnězeno in Czechia, bringing the two companies together with more than two thousand partners and seven hundred thousand users who together can help save good quality food. In the last four months, the number of monthly “munches” has more than doubled, with the two platforms together selling nearly 550,000 packs in that time. And ahead of Christmas, a charity campaign is planned: with MunCharity, anyone can invite a person in need to a meal, which Munch will deliver to the recipient with the help of the Food Bank.
