There is a great app specifically designed to reduce food waste. Available in the US, but they are based in England so it isn’t promoted much here, yet.
I use it to send my excess garden produce to people who will enjoy eating it, slowly but surely people in my neighborhood are catching on (it is obviously a very local app, since nobody wants to travel very far to get my free kale … ). I even let people snip their own thyme, rosemary and oregano, only listing it as available when I know there is plenty to go around.
App is named OLIO, its app icon says something like ‘I <heart> OLIO’
Highly recommended. I have seen how it works in London and edible food is snatched up almost immediately.
