Foodsharing Luxembourg is a non-profit association that wants to reduce food waste in Luxembourg through the following projects:

  • Cooperation with food stores, restaurants, cafés… to redistribute their left-overs
  • Open fridges to share private excess food
  • Events and actions for sensitization


During 2010–2016, global food loss and waste equalled 8–10% of total GHG [greenhouse gas] emissions.
