Moby Dick Partners with Too Good To Go
Moby Dick House of Kabob, a pillar of the local restaurant community since 1989, is expanding its efforts to end food waste and help those in need. The restaurant group, with nearly two dozen locations in the D.C. Metro area, Virginia and Maryland, recently became one of the first local restaurants to partner with Too Good To Go, an app that points consumers to delicious surplus food that otherwise would be thrown away.
“We have been amazed at the success Too Good To Go has had in reducing food waste in the cities where it first launched,” said Alex Momeni, Moby Dick House of Kabob’s Chief Development Officer. “When Too Good To Go announced it would be coming to the D.C. Metro area, we knew we wanted to be part of the endeavor right from the start.”
As a participating restaurant in the program, Moby Dick House of Kabob can alert customers who use the Too Good To Go app when its restaurants have a surplus of food at the end of a day that must be sold — or thrown out. By offering that food at a discounted price, Moby Dick House of Kabob hopes to be part of a growing effort to eliminate food waste worldwide.
“There is a great need for restaurants in the D.C. area and across the globe to step up what they are doing to end food waste,” said Lucie Basch, Co-Founder. “We are thrilled that Moby Dick House of Kabob is a teammate of ours in this ambitious and worthwhile mission.”
Moby Dick House of Kabob is no stranger to charitable work, as giving back to the community is a core focus of the company’s management team and its employees. Moby Dick House of Kabob has partnered with the nonprofit Bea Gaddy Family Centers in Baltimore and Charlie’s Place in D.C. to prepare free meals for families in need.
