Thank you to Tageblatt for this lively article about our Distribution Days in Junglinster. Without our committed members of Foodsharing Luxembourg and the support of the commune of Junglinster, these would not have been possible.
United Against Food Waste: Making sure food ends up in people’s stomachs
Foodsharing Luxembourg participated at the European Youth Event (EYE) at the European Parliament in Strasbourg with thousands of young people from all over the European Union and beyond with a workshop where participants came up with ideas on how to tackle food loss and food waste.
Thank you! That is what “United Against Food Waste” stands for!
Our workshop took place on Saturday, October 9, 2021, from 14:00 to 15:00
Today, the first public fridge, also known as Foodsharing Point, has been inaugurated in front of the shop Naturwelten, rue Auguste Charles 7, Bonnevoie, Luxembourg City. Co-funded by the Ministery for Cooperation and Humanitarian Action and Frères des Hommes Luxembourg in the framework of Education for Sustainable Development, the project consists of the provision of a publicly accessible fridge that serves as a food exchange point for private individuals. In fact, private households are responsible for 75% of food waste, for around 89 kg per person per year. This project starts here and is accessible for everybody around the clock.
