GiveHalf is an innovative startup that partners with restaurants to reduce food waste and make a difference in the lives of hungry individuals. With GiveHalf, you elect to eat a smaller meal, and the partnering restaurant donates the cost of unserved ingredients to organizations that fight hunger.

Until Sunday, May 11th, GiveHalf will be running a Hearty Picnic Pop Up Cafe! Every menu item will be a smaller portion meal, and the cost of unused ingredients will be donated to fight hunger in America. The pop-up will feature a fresh, seasonal menu designed by celebrity chefs from “The Taste” and non-dairy frozen treats from Alchemy Creamery. Mention TAP-NY and get a free flavor-infused iced beverage with your food order!
