Half food box service in traveling firms

Initially everyone should be served with half packed food, then other half on-demand, this will reduce the contamination in extra food.

There are some other Ideas solving the same problem like this, some suggested that traveling agencies should ask about the amount of food at the time of ticket purchasing, but in fact no one will be agree to reduce his/her food at service as they are fully paying for it and they don't know that at the time of meal they can eat more or less. It can work only in very rare case if some one has food related disease.

When other people (98%) open the full package of food, and leave the extra food in tray/box it starts to contaminate and deteriorate. 

So we invented a sustainable solution that every person should get 50% of food and later on he/she can ask for other 50% after finishing first one.

So the another 50% of unopened packages of food can be preserve longer with good quality as they are not exposed to open air. This can save food and money.

What early, lightweight experiment might you try out in your own community to find out if the idea will meet your expectations?

The concept is very strait and forward, so there is no doubt that it will reduce food waste, but government should make policies to force travel agencies to adopt this idea.

What skills, input or guidance from the OpenIDEO community would be most helpful in building out or refining your idea?
