as the most of you are Berliner, I was wondering why there hasn't been any thread about foodsharing. It's a very interesting and helping organization.
The main aims are saving or better "rescuing" food and of course to call everyone's attention to the problem of food wastage. Of course there arise more helpful aims as helping the deserving poor receive food that they cannot offer, but this has to be in "hidden agenda", as the fundamental idea has to be the reduction of palatable food.
So if you are interested, the next question will be "how can I help"?
The best thing is to inform yourself on the following website:
Your main job will be to go to selected supermarkets, bakeries, etc. that work together with foodsharing e.V., there you receive an amount of food, that normally would be thrown away because it is not allowed to them to sell it! You can keep it, give it to your neighbors, friends, family or to soup kitchens, other organizations, etc.
If you are interested you have to register in the above shared link, there you have to pass an important quiz about the organization and the work that has to be done.
If you have problems with the language to solve the quiz you can contact the team by the following e-mail:
Nice information. Is there any in NRW?
