A Website for Sharing Leftovers

In Germany, a new website* is making it simple and fun to share food with your community.

Instead of throwing away leftovers or surplus produce that will not be consumed by your household, you can easily post their availability online to be found by someone in need! Likewise, if you are cooking and missing a few ingredients, you can check the site to see if any of your neighbors have what you need before heading to the store!

Saving food, saving money, and meeting friendly new people… Doesn’t it sound wonderful? So far, there have been nearly 10,000 exchanges made via the site, saving over 36,000 KG of food. :)

*The site can be instantly translated into English depending on your internet browser. Google Chrome works well for this.
