Empower your customers
Reduce portion sizes
Educate on takeaway
Offer guidance on how customers can best to use leftovers. Do this by providing information on when leftovers are no longer safe to eat and/or offer instructions on storing, reheating and serving leftovers.
Empower your community
Further on an earlier point, you could team up with other venues on your street to help spread the community spirit and rescue more surplus food.
Working as a community will mean greater good can be achieved with a smaller footprint.
