The Foodsharing Point Lintgen had a group of 13 people come and visit on a bike tour ( with velosophie https://velosophie.lu/de/) as part of their annual outing with etika -a non-profit association founded in 1996 who aims to promote alternative finance and thus support the transformation towards a more sustainable world – https://etika.lu/ . Their focus this year was food waste and so they came to visit our FP to learn more about FSL and how they can take part in reducing food waste. It was a glorious morning, the sun was shining and it was a success for everyone involved. After some ‘saved food’ refreshments and stocking up from the fridge in the FP for their picnic lunch, they cycled off to Kass Haff and Naturata.

Advent Window at Foodsharing Point Lintgen

On December 1st, the Foodsharing Point in Lintgen revealed their Advent Window. The event was organised by the commune of Lintgen over the 24 days of Advent.

The window decorations were lovingly crafted by local children and all the lights and Christmas decorations were donated to us by SIVEC recycling centre.

The event was a team effort, and everyone had an enjoyable evening sharing saved food and drinking warm spiced apple juice made with local fruit!

It was a special occasion to connect with people from the village. It gave us the opportunity to explain and demonstrate how the Foodsharing Point works, discuss some common misconceptions, and spread the message to help fight food waste in Luxembourg.

Come to see our Advent Window – our window is lit up every night from 18:00 to 21:00 and you can also visit the Foodsharing Point.

“Take what you need, share what you can, fighting food waste together!”

Thank you, from the Foodsharing Point team Lintgen
