You’re hungry and broke, yet you... also... have... an iPhone? There’s an app for that. LeftoverSwap allows you to browse uneaten or half-eaten meals (really) listed by people in your network and coordinate delivery or pick-up. While there’s a bit of/BUNCH OF an ick-factor in finishing the meals of strangers, or almost-strangers, the app caters to sustainability-minded folks who want to “be the change” in the effort to reduce food waste (40% of food produced in the US goes to uneaten), but don’t want to actually go dumpster-diving.
Everything you need to make your own wine
Even if you don’t have the equipment, Napa Valley real estate, or a drop of wine experience, you can still make and sell your own vino (whaaaaa?) with the help of Dogpatch WineWorks, a one-stop shop for custom wine production. From sourcing the grapes to helping you design the label, the company and warehouse space has the equipment and expertise to lower the barrier of entry for city-dwellers who want to get into the business or make wine as a hobby.
