Food waste is a big problem; we throw away ⅓ of all produced food, and a lot of the food is edible food from supermarkets that are simply not pretty enough. We ask the stores to give us the food, and we make a party out of it where we cook the food together and eat!
The Food Rescue Party is a very easy project to share with other sustainable organizations and is a good way to strengthen relations between them.
We also collaborate with GSSA (Gothenburg Student Sustainability Alliance) on their “Veggie at my place”. You get assigned to groups of four to meet each week at each other’s place to socialize and learn to cook vegetarian meals together.
