We are an organization that aims to fight food waste through awareness raising with events, blogs and interesting info-graphics. No one wants to waste food and natural resources, yet 1/3 of produced food is wasted. By bringing more attention to the problems and listing their solutions, we strive to make food waste a thing of the past.
Our mission is to make the problem of food waste understandable by raising awareness in different ways: videos, articles, campaigns, blogs and discussions. We want people to see that it is an integral part of their daily habits, which has a negative impact on our world.
By 2017 we see us with established chapters in different countries from around the world. We want food waste to be a commonly discussed topic. We believe that it would lead to a public debate, which will help transform our current food system.
