Just one year ago, on 12 December 2012 www.foodsharing.de was launched. The online platform for sharing food is run by the nonprofit association FOODSHARING e.V. and was founded to take a stand against food waste.
Foodsharing.de gives households, businesses and producers the opportunity to offer and share excess, good quality food with others. More than 30,000 people have signed up on the website and shared 25,000 kg of food. Moreover, over 1,800 foodsavers now pick up excess food from supermarkets, farmers, restaurants etc. and take them to organizations that support people in need.
