Every year, restaurants and other food-based companies throw away an estimated 43 billion pounds of food.

One MBA student hopes to change that by serving uneaten restaurant food to people who are willing to pay much less than menu price for it.

David Rodriguez is the creator of Food for All, a new app that allows users to buy the food that restaurants did not sell before the end of the day. The Food for All meals can be as much as 80 percent off their usual cost.

A Kickstarter campaign aims to raise $50,000 to get the app off the ground.

Rodriguez said 30 restaurants in the Boston area have agreed to partner with him, and he hopes that reaching his fundraising goal will allow him to launch a New York version of Food for All as well.
