We're thrilled to announce the launch of the new Budgeat app. The completely redesigned app is now free to use as well, making all the benefits of Budgeat more accessible than ever before.
Budgeat act as a digital kitchen assistant to help you find recipes, create meal plans, organize your shopping list, and track what's in your pantry. By meaningfully integrating technology into home cooking Budgeat’s goal is to reduce food waste and simplify lives. Using the Budgeat app to help with tasks such as remembering what’s in the fridge, sourcing new recipes, and finding creative uses for ingredients that would otherwise go to waste enables individuals to make the most of their food.
These changes reflect the invaluable feedback we’ve received from the Budgeat community since our launch in April. We’re tremendously appreciative of our early members and excited about what lies ahead.
Why This Matters
Budgeat is needed now more than ever, as food costs rise, the health implications of poor diets cause a substantial strain on society and individuals, and the climate crisis grows ever more urgent. In the U.S. 30-40% of all food is wasted, with the largest single component being household food waste. Globally food that is wasted is responsible for approximately 8-10% of greenhouse gas emissions and 24% of all freshwater use. Despite all the squandering, 1 in 10 individuals are still food insecure, in no small part due to the unprecedented increase in the cost of food. Finally, the health implications of poor diets are profound. Of the $4.1 trillion in annual U.S. healthcare expenditures, 86% is for people with chronic conditions, many of which are linked to poor diets. Budgeat directly targets all of these challenges. What happens in our kitchens matters and we’re committed to helping people make the most of theirs.
Budgeat is on a mission to revolutionize how the world eats at home. Founded in 2022 to help people eat better, save money, and waste less, the company leverages technology to improve the process of cooking and eating at home, with an emphasis on reducing food waste.
