There's now a new way you could save up to 50 percent off groceries at Tops Markets.

It's an app called Flashfood, and it's a real win-win.

WIVB reports:

In the app, you will find a variety of items like produce, baked goods, meats and more that are close to the ‘sell-by’ date.

Then, you can buy those items in the app for half-off or more.

Over the summer, the program was in a trial run at six Tops locations. Now, the app can be used at 33 Tops locations in Erie and Chautauqua counties. During the trial, 1000 shoppers saved 30,000 pounds of food from going to waste.

“We were really impressed and saw that a lot of people were interested in using it and so we thought we really needed to make sure more people had access to this.” -Kathy Sautter, Tops Markets.

 

After you download the Flashfood app, choose your store location and add the items you want to your cart. To get your items, go to customer service in the store.

The app is a great way to save consumers money and also prevent how much food is wasted by retailers by going unsold.

According to the FDA: 

Wasted food is the single largest category of material placed in municipal landfills and represents nourishment that could have helped feed families in need.
