Dining out is a favorite activity for most people. Between the food, the company, the atmosphere, and the fact that we didn’t have to pick up so much as paring knife, dining out offers a wholly enjoyable experience. Too often, however, we do not think about the quantity of food we are served; portion sizes have increased in proportion with our collective waist size, and much of that food remains uneaten and gets thrown away. Worse still, millions of people do not have enough food to eat, including the family living right down the street from the restaurant you frequent. Problem? Indeed! Thankfully, Halfsies is doing something about it. By raising awareness of these three issues (huge portion sizes, excessive food waste, and hunger), Halfsies offers patrons a way to tackle all three in one sitting. Pick a Halfsies-designated meal, eat half the regular portion, pay for the full portion, and the balance is donated to fight hunger around the world. Rethinking the way we eat? It’s a win-win-win!
