You just arrived at the home of the global and distributed movement against food waste.
Our main method is to save food from being thrown away. This is done via cooperations with stores, restaurants and any kind of business, that handles food.
We support all initiatives that want to join the fight against food waste! Depending on your needs there's different resources that could be of interest to you.
Not much can be done alone, so building a community is of utmost importance for a successful foodsaving project. Not only to have people to carry out the pick-ups, but also to have a good network of hungry fellows to make use of the saved food. We want to helop you with that!
When a foodsaving group is growing, it becomes hard to keep all members in sync. They start using group chats, spreadsheets and other online tools. At some point, this isn't enough anymore and specialized software becomes crucial for their operations. We aim to build this software and connect similar-minded projects!

Using this as a base, we created a collection of documents, which hopefully proves useful:
